Popis Undergraduates encountering legal English for the first time often struggle to grasp the concepts and the lexis of specialized language. Some of them may find it difficult because of their insufficient level of English, some may not be aware of how to efficiently develop their subject-specific language skills. Implementing online tools can help overcome many of these difficulties. Modern technologies can be used for various purposes, e.g. motivating, introducing new topics, revising, or developing productive skills. The paper focuses mainly on online applications which can assist students with comprehending texts, identifying useful words and collocations, and with supporting vocabulary building. The presented tools include "Compleat Lexical Tutor" which offers many corpus-based functions, and several applications, including kahoot and Quizlet, which provide options for vocabulary storing and revising.
