English is the dominant language of international business relations, and a good working knowledge of the language is essential for today’s legal or business professional. Written with the needs of both practitioners and students in mind, Legal English provides a comprehensive and highly practical approach to its subject-matter and addresses the key aspects of the use of English in commercial legal contexts.
Legal English covers the key areas of legal English usage for both written and oral legal communication in typical legal situations. It features expanded terminology glossaries, legal drafting troubleshooting tips, language for negotiation and contract-drafting guidance.
This new fourth edition now offers more activities and examples, both in print and online, showing how language is correctly applied, as well as sample templates for commonly used written documents such as legal letters, memoranda, and contracts.
