Item description for English As a Legal Language by Christine Rossini...

Learning another language is a challenge. But navigating the complexities of legal terminology in another language represents a challenge on another level entirely. English as a Legal Language makes this challenge surmountable by providing a lawyer s plain-language guide to English legal terminology. The English as a Legal Language user simply looks under a general heading to find the relevant terms and their usage. Readers may also use this guide to find explanations of words from a translating dictionary. Further, English as a Legal Language may operate as a thesaurus organised according to topic with an alphabetical index. More and more, continental lawyers need the English language. Attempts to convert the language to meet one's own purposes often result in misconceptions, however. The English language has its roots in the Anglo American legal tradition and the continental lawyer may have difficulty understanding a word choice in English without also seeing how it fits into legal thinking and relates to other words in the subject area as a whole. English as a Legal Language offers a comparative lexicon of Anglo American legal systems with European Community law. Any non-English speaking lawyer, and especially continental European lawyers, will find this book of value in their practices, as will businesspeople, accountants, translators, secretaries, and students. This book will enable all practitioners and academics to better express involved ideas in English, to better understand the complexities of English as a legal language, and to avoid the potential mishaps when language barriers prevent a true meeting of the minds.
