This thesis reports a study of the role of English communication skills in law courses delivered in Singaporean tertiary institutions. This was facilitated through the perspectives of the academics involved. The findings suggest that academic performance in legal subjects is directly linked to English language proficiency; that learners should be provided with English language support; that the teacher should assimilate English communication skill sets in class; and that the teaching of such skills is vocationally beneficial. This thesis is presented in the light of an evolving legal landscape and prompts further pedagogical and modular research on legal education.
