Spanish for Lawyers

Many students who come to the University of Mississippi School of Law after studying a foreign language — or growing up speaking one — discover their fluency does not automatically extend to legal matters. As every 1L quickly learns, the law is a language all its own, with a unique vocabulary and special conventions of expression. “Spanish for Lawyers,” a workshop and possible class for Spring 2022, is designed to shrink this fluency gap by helping Spanish-speaking students become confident in using Spanish legal terminology. The program blends asynchronous recorded modules with a live discussion group. The workshop will take place every other Monday from September 12th to November 7th, and October 12th (a Wednesday) from 5-6pm.
The Oct. 12 session will be in room 1092. All other sessions are in 1046.
