Although I am a sworn translator certified by the Polish Ministry of Justice, I want to expand my legal vocabulary and gain a qualification in legal English.
I am considering either of these two exams:

Test of Legal English skills:
Legal English Certificate:

Both qualifications are at the B2 to C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. My English is at C2 level but still I believe I would profit from the course with regard to the specific legal vocabulary and texts.
Have you had experiences with either of these two exams?
Is it worth taking them? Would most outsourcers recognize my qualification to translate legal texts if I have a TOLES or ILEC certificate?
Many thanks!

Thanks hnrhnr Oct 14, 2009

Thanks for your help. I have seen those pages about who recognizes both certificates but I also asked about personal opinions and experiences of fellow translators/interpreters.
