I am struggling with a letter I want to write to the Law Society. I need some information about the legal sector in England and I don't know how to start my letter.
Would it be correct to write :
" Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to enquire about information concerning the legal sector in England."
Another sentence I'm not sure about in my letter is the following : "Could you please tell me if my French diploma is recognised in England and if not, if there is a way to have it so ?"
Is the expression "to have it so" which avoids me to repeat "recognised" correct?
And a last question, is it possible to end such a letter by writing : "Thanking you in advance?"
I hope that you will be able to help me.
Thanks a lot
The first sentence sounds a little off as you are not really 'enquiring about information'. you only need one or the other:
I am writing to enquire about the legal sector in England.
I am writing as I would like some information about the legal sector in England.
'to have it so' is not that clear. Try '...and if not, whether there is anything I can do to achieve recognition.'
You can say 'Thank you in advance' but this is not very formal.

If "Thanking you in advance" is not formal enough, is there another way to say it, please?
Your forum is really helpfull!

I have thought about this Question for a long time and here i am looking for work once more and wondering the same thing. I have to contact an old employer for a refrence and was stewing over how to start it.
If this is enjoyed let it be known B. Disbrowe came up with it,
Ill use a common phrase people use in day to day meetings.
Even though its often considered bad by certain professionals to open with a question.
and then you write what you want to ask for
