About us

The company history

Lawbility AG began its journey in 2010 with a legal professional language course offering in English (Professional Legal English Language and Practical Skills). Over the years, the vision “train your professional language, demonstrate your lawbility” evolved into a broad range of training and coaching services, which fostered the language and practical skills of hundreds of lawyers, legal professionals as well as aspiring practitioners and students. This was later followed by professional language courses and practical training offerings in French (français juridique) and German (Rechtsdeutsch).


In 2013 (2nd edition 2017), The Legal English Manual was produced under the auspices of Lawbility in co-edition with Helbing Lichtenhahn/Basel, C.H.Beck/Munich and BarWrite® Press/USA. It contains professional legal language, legal English terminology, and examples of use in everyday professional situations and helps lawyers, attorneys, and practitioners in English-speaking professional situations to use their professional skills confidently and competently.

With The Legal English Course Book Volume One / Volume Two, two course books were published in 2018, which Lawbility has developed and used since 2010 as part of its “Professional Legal English & Practical Skills Training”. The practical materials for self-study and interactive classes teach professional professional language and legal terminology in their application in practice situations. They also prepare efficiently and professionally for the Professional Legal English and Practical Skills Exam “PLEPS“.

Finally, in 2018, the Compendium on Swiss Law was published, developed by lawyers and edited by the Head of the Legal Atelier, Jean-Luc Delli. It offers a general overview of relevant areas of law and is an ideal compact introduction to Swiss law. Published by Lawbility Verlag in co-edition with Helbing Lichtenhahn/Basel and C.H.Beck/Munich.

* All author teams are composed of Lawbility coaches as well as nationally and internationally practicing lawyers.
