Popis Being a skilful writer is a fundamental requirement for any aspiring lawyer; legal English courses for law undergraduates should therefore include a writing element. Whether designing a course, or just supplementing a textbook, these are the questions to be addressed by the teacher: What genres are relevant for students of law? How do we select what to teach? And, equally important, how do we make writing practice palatable for our young audience? Even though the room for creativity is limited in legal writing as such, legal teachers do not have to adhere to such limitations. An original approach that combines student involvement, teamwork, motivation and sense of relevancewill be presented. The workshop participants are used as a sounding board for sample activities designed to help students to stock on stock phrases and get familiar with the relevant templates in an enjoyable way.
