    About 

    EULETA’s membership is made up of many people working in different capacities in legal English, for example: lawyers, linguists, translators, legal English trainers for professionals, and legal English university professors. This workshop, co-organised by Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and EULETA, aims to bring our diverse members together to share and find new practical ways of combining our expertise to improve our legal English teaching.  
    Presentations must be related to the teaching of legal English. Topics may also include legal linguistics, legal drafting, legal translation, and interpretation. Presenters should provide participants with a tangible takeaway to implement in their teaching practices.
    Workshop sessions will be 45 minutes in length: 35 minutes for presentations + 10 minutes for Q and A.

    The EULETA External-Speaker Training Series features speakers who are experts in their fields and external to EULETA. The talks are on topics which are connected to our work as legal English teachers and which help our continued professional development. 

    Our next external speaker training event will be on Thursday 14th March 2024 5.30pm - 7pm CET.

    Christopher Williams will be speaking about Recent Trends in Plain Legal English.

    About Christopher Williams’ talk

    Christopher Williams will give a brief history of how plain language has developed in the English-speaking world since the 1970s and to what extent it has impacted on written legal English in the UK: the language of legislation, the language of court decisions, and the language of online terms and conditions. He will also look to the future, with particular reference to how design and visualisation are starting to become increasingly important when drafting legal documents.
    You will be able to ask questions during the presentation and discuss the latest trends in plain English writing.

    More about Christopher Williams

He is the representative for Italy of Clarity, the international plain language organization promoting plain legal English and legal design. He is chief editor of the journal ESP Across Cultures.
