    Lawyers, law students and others that speak English as a second language regularly experience difficulties communicating effectively in various career-based scenarios. On a worldwide basis, legal authorities from all business realms are finding that they need to confidently express technical legal jargon in English, not their native languages. Often, receiving traditional instruction in English fails to teach the vocabulary necessary to speak assuredly and authoritatively in courtrooms and/or other formalized business settings. Karen accommodates focused online learning sessions in which her students concentrate on the specific legal English requirements needed for their particular practice areas of law.

    Karen Lundquist graduated with honors from William Mitchell College of Law in 2005 and now owns the Attenza Law Firm. She developed her love for culture, language and the legal process before attending law school while living in Italy, Chile and Mexico. Miss Lundquist also taught English as a foreign language in Rome, Italy for more than a decade before entering William Mitchell. Karen is currently the Co-Director of the Business Practicum at William Mitchell College of Law and teaches in the LLM program at the University of Minnesota Law School where she instructs foreign attorneys in legal writing and research. For six years, she served as the coordinator and instructor for William Mitchell's Summer Institute on American Law, a summer study abroad for Turkish lawyers and law students.

    Speaking English, Spanish and Italian fluently, she assists her global clientele in developing the presence and confidence they need to rise up and excel in their legal professions. Karen states, "Law is very technical subject matter and using English for the law is very different than using it for everyday purposes. With my experiences as a language teacher, my students gain the fluency that they need and want so they are able to speak about legal matters in English confidently. Additionally, with my experiences as an attorney, my students can talk to me about the law and know that I understand, something that few other language teachers can do."
