Legal English (4th edition)

I am the author of the third edition of Legal English published by Routledge.

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.

This fourth edition builds upon the success of its predecessors, and combines and integrates both online and traditional print elements.

  • The book 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.
  • The website contains realistic, in-depth and contextual exercises on each area covered in the book. It is intended as a unique self-study resource to be used in connection with the book, and is supported by an automatic marking facility.

See Legal English (4th edition) for further details.
