A7528 - The Language of the Law

About this Unit
This unit aims to develop in students an understanding of the intricacies of the language of the law when used in written documents and mainly in the context of the courtroom. It will provide students with a historical overview of the development of Law English, its aims and purposes and its current uses. Special emphasis will be placed on the implications of legal language on legal translations and court interpreting, but the unit is suitable for monolingual students interested in the language of the law.
