On 26 May 2015 at 11.30 am, eCPD Webinars is hosting a webinar of 60-70 minutes in length plus Q&A, entitled An introduction to Russian/English legal translation.
- The webinar will look briefly at the two different legal systems in Russia and the UK but also mention some of the differences between the UK and other English-speaking jurisdictions (e.g. the US).
- It will then attempt to outline a few cases where the two systems meet (e.g. choice of law clauses) and describe a practical approach to some of the problems posed by the different systems.
- The third section will look at terminology.
