Free to enter ‘Weekly Legal English Redrafting Competition’:

Every week, I’m running a competition for you to redraft a short legal or business that is really hard to understand, into a text that is still professionally written but a lot easier to understand.

Each week, the winner wins access to my course: “Learn how to improve your professional English writing skills” – one of very few courses to teach non-native speakers of English the writing skills that are taught in UK and US law schools.

To take part in the competition, you have to send me your answer by personal or direct message through my Facebook page for WrittenLegalEnglish.com.

Here you can find all the competition videos, week by week.
