Test of Legal English Skills (TOLES)

Professional Language Solutions is a registered TOLES exam centre.

What is TOLES?

TOLES means ‘Test of Legal English Skills’. The exams (three levels) were developed in partnership with commercial lawyers. They provided input into the English language level a lawyer needs to reach in order to have a successful career and carry out essential legal tasks.


It is intended as a test of working lawyers’ commercial legal English skills, rather than a test of their academic legal English skills.
