Hi, I'm Myriam.
I'm a Canadian lawyer with over 12 years of experience in commercial litigation and international arbitration. I am currently completing certificates in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (with specializations in teaching Business English and IELTS/TOEFL test preparation) and Translation (Spanish to English), both from the University of Toronto. I have many years of experience teaching English, legal writing and advocacy skills to lawyers and other professionals from around the world.
I am passionate about languages. Helping lawyers from around the world interact more effectively in English allows me to combine my passions for the law, language and teaching. I speak English and French natively, Spanish and Portuguese fluently, and have some knowledge of Italian, German and Mandarin.
I am a member of the European Legal English Teachers' Association (EULETA).
I provide a wide variety of English-language consulting and legal English training services to lawyers, judges, law students, law firms, in-house legal departments, universities and professional organizations, which are carefully tailored and customized to the client’s particular needs.
These services can be delivered entirely in English, or bilingually in Spanish/English, Portuguese/English, French/English or Italian/English.
My consulting engagements are highly customizable, depending on the client's individual needs. They include:
