If I pass TOLES with good scores, I will obtain a certificate confirming my Legal English skills at the international level. This, I believe, will contribute a lot to my CV and will act as a prerequisite for me to obtain job opportunities at international companies. As the only official center of the TOLES exam within the TRNC, EMU provides us with this unique opportunity.

In the current day, there are far too many law graduates and studying law is not a privileged opportunity as it was before. There is also high competition. Therefore, you have to make a difference at local and international levels. In this respect, TOLES is an unmissable opportunity.  Having been providing high quality study opportunities since 1979, EMU pays special importance to equip the students with skills and qualities that would help them pursue valuable job opportunities both at national and international levels. TOLES is one of the tools serving for this purpose.

The reason I am taking TOLES is to stand out of crowd as a lawyer. I also want to take my skills to further points through this exam. In the future, I would like to work abroad as a lawyer and TOLES certificate’s support in this respect would be undeniable. As the only official center within the TRNC, EMU provides us with this valuable document and relevant training free of charge. I believe TOLES certification would be of great benefit for my colleagues wishing to work at international companies within Turkey.
