Knowing Spanish legal terms will increase your job prospects. Whether you want to work with Spanish-speaking clients or work in international law, your knowledge of Spanish will come in handy. Even if a job doesn’t require it, it’s still a skill that many employers will find a very desirable skill.

A skill that will increase the number of people you can serve. Even if a client speaks fluent English, he/she may be more comfortable being able to communicate in Spanish. Legal proceedings are stressful, and it is easiest to speak in the language you’re most comfortable with. Therefore, many clients may seek out legal professionals who can speak their language.

If your firm does not offer services in Spanish, these clients may look for another firm that does. However, if you’re willing to learn, your law firm can start marketing to Spanish-speaking customers. This can significantly increase the number of clients interested in your services.
