- Legal English is a professional language. This means that a good command of ordinary English does not automatically make a student proficient in legal English. A command of legal English is not just a desirable academic skill. It has become an absolute 'must' for todays legal professionals working in internationally orientated environments. This book offers: vocabularies providing sets of legal terminology associated with the legal system, civil procedure, tort, contract law and company law; text putting the terms in the vocabularies into their legal context; case discussion questions in order to practice using the terminology; knowledge questions to ensure that the reader has understood the legal concepts.
