Abstract

The article aims to reveal the challenges both ESP learners and teachers encounter during learning/teaching specific content and specific vocabulary of English for Legal studies. The main issue which is anticipated to be a challenge for teachers in this course is often inadequate knowledge of a specialist field. As far as learners are concerned we anticipate that in most ESP courses they are not prepared for professional communication in English on the area of their field. These anticipated results are the basic hypothesis of our manuscript to focus on. The study is aiming at finding out and answering these two questions. For this purpose the survey was carried out at SEEU, English for Legal Studies faculty. Both teachers and learners were asked about their attitude and preparedness towards ESP course
