The Advanced exam consists of legal reading and writing. It measures the skills of a candidate against a native English-speaking lawyer. In other words, any candidate who qualifies in the "Gold" category actually has legal skills very similar to an English-speaking lawyer. The exam focuses on the vocabulary and grammar necessary for writing contracts. It also promotes the knowledge of the simple style of writing in English (Plain Legal English) currently favored by leading commercial law firms.
