Introduction to Legal English -- A New Edition of the Book for Lawyers and Law Students Who Speak English as a Second Language
The International Law Institute of Washington D.C. has just published the third edition of Introduction to Legal English. This book was the first in the United States to focus specifically on the needs of lawyers and law students who speak English as a second language. The book was originally designed to be used during a two week intensive English language course that prepared students for law school lectures, legal writing assignments, and participation in professional conferences such as bar association meetings. It has also been used in other types of course settings and for individual study. Click here for more information. Copies of the book can be ordered directly from the International Law Institute. It also makes for a good book to have on reserve in your law school library as a resource for your international students.
