THE WORLD’S LEADING ENGLISH EXAM FOR LAWYERS, LAW STUDENTS AND LEGAL TRANSLATORS.

TOLES is the leading provider of professional English language training materials and exams for international lawyers, law students and legal translators. Our study materials and exams are very highly regarded because we have taken advice from employers on the English language training a successful lawyer needs to develop his or her skills in a modern commercial environment.


TOLES means ‘Test of Legal English Skills’. The TOLES programme consists of a structured course of legal English training materials supported by three levels of professional exams. The exam levels are progressive steps towards reaching the standard of legal English required by employers such as international commercial law firms, in-house legal teams in private companies and top-class translators.

TOLES legal English training materials and exams have been developed following the advice of experienced commercial lawyers. The top requirements of employers are excellent drafting skills, first-class negotiating skills and a strong sense of commercial awareness. As members of the International Division of the Law Society of England and Wales we are in an excellent position to support international legal professionals in achieving these goals.
