In this article the authors focus on the study of practical legal cases as one of the effective methods in foreign discursive communicative competence training in professional French courses taught by faculties whose specialization is international law. The procedure for resolving a practical case in French requires close coherence and interaction between the pragmatic, linguistic and professional components of the teaching process. This is the main objective of the authors who propose a selection of legal practical cases in order to integrate them into the system of teaching French as a professional based on the following criteria: linguistic and professional. In this case, the authors propose an appropriate algorithm for solving practical cases in professional French courses for students who specialize in international law.
Key words: communicative discourse competence, legal question, practical case, professional foreign language; professional French, teaching method, jurist-internationalist
