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.

Legal English provides a highly practical approach to the key aspects of the use of English in commercial legal contexts covering crucial law terminology and legal concepts. Written with the needs of both students and practitioners in mind, the book is particularly suitable for readers whose first language is not English but who need to use English in a legal context on a regular basis.

The book covers both written and oral legal communication in typical legal situations in a straightforward manner. As well as including chapters on grammar and punctuations for legal writing the book features sections on contract-drafting, language for negotiation, meetings, and telephone conversations.

This edition contains new sections on writing law essays and applying for legal positions, together with additional troubleshooting tips for legal writing and guidance on good style as well as expanded glossaries.
