Ukrainets I.A.
PhD in History, Associate Professor of the Department of Foreign Languages, Russian State University of Justice, Moscow, Russia

The article is devoted to the problems of teaching undergraduates of non-linguistic universities professional legal language. The author analyzes the current issues of training lawyers at the present stage, the composition and level of training of students entering the magistracy of law faculties. Based on his many years of experience in teaching the subject to law students at a law school, the author considers and proposes ways and methods of teaching legal translation to enhance its effectiveness. The article also discusses new concepts, such as “artificial intelligence” and “erratology” (error analysis), “legal jargon”, “legal professionalism” and their application in the practice of teaching a professional legal translation.

Keywords: professional legal language, professional legal texts, problems of teaching the translation and interpretation of legal texts, legal documents, the problem of errors in the translation of legal documents, the role of information technologies, erotology (error analysis), artificial intelligence
