Il progetto si articola in due prodotti, saldamente legati tra loro: il volume cartaceo e le risorse digitali. Il libro si compone di una serie di Unit tematiche, a loro volta suddivise in quattro Lesson, ciascuna dedicata a uno specifico argomento di inglese legale, per fornire un testo agile ma che presenti una struttura robusta e integrata di letture ed esercizi volti a testare e incrementare le principali competenze linguistiche del lettore. In chiusura di ogni Unit un Caso di Studio, pensato per favorire il Critical Thinking e il lavoro di gruppo.

Legal English consists of both the printed book and a unique MyLab digital platform. The volume presents an overview of the Law divided into ten thematic Units: starting with a presentation of the British legal system followed by in-depth coverage of the core legal subjects and their related linguistic context. Each of the ten units contains four lessons on different topics concerning a particular area of Law. The book also offers a varied combination of revision exercises at the end of each Lesson to help students assess how well they have mastered the concepts covered in a lively and engaging way. Each unit contains two pages devoted to leading cases which constitute important legal precedents in English and American common law. At the end of each Unit, the Writing Corner presents learners with real situations of writing in order to make them apply their Legal English writing skills with real situations of writing.
