In addition to our general Spanish language classes, Dynamo Spanish offers specialized language courses designed to help you in your professional field.
If you are a lawyer/attorney, a member of law enforcement, or a legal professional, Dynamo Spanish’s Legal Spanish for Lawyers, Attorneys, and Police Officers is designed to help you learn the specialized Spanish vocabulary you need to succeed. We also welcome law students looking to improve their language skills.
Why You Should Take Legal Spanish for Lawyers, Attorneys, and Police Officers
If you want to work in the legal field (or work with those in the legal field) in a Spanish-speaking country, you’ll need to learn the jargon used. This material is typically not covered in traditional language courses, so even if you consider yourself fluent in Spanish, you may not have been exposed to the legal vocabulary and legal terminology you need to know.
Additionally, those in the legal field in a place where Spanish isn’t an official language will still find Legal Spanish for Lawyers, Attorneys, and Police Officers helpful.
For example, there are 52.6 million people who speak Spanish in the United States, according to the Instituto Cervantes. If you work in an area where there’s a good chance you’ll be working with Spanish-speaking clients, you can find yourself ahead of the competition if you also speak Spanish.
