Description

In this concise book, Craig Hoffman offers practical guidance to non-U.S. lawyers on how to read, analyze, and write U.S. Legal English. Hoffman writes from the perspective of both an attorney and a trained linguist. His advice is grounded on years of experience at Georgetown University Law Center, where Hoffman has introduced hundreds of foreign LL.M. students to the ways that U.S. lawyers use language to communicate about the law.
