Introduction

The International  Journal of Legal English is a refereed publication which  provides both  on-line access  and hard copy volumes to all those involved in the research, teaching and learning of Legal English Communication. This is a wide-ranging field examining how Legal English language teaching and learning is structured, how meanings and ideas are formed and encoded, how they are communicated and represented, and how they are decoded and interpreted. It is a rapidly developing social sciences discipline which is increasingly reaching across into other disciplinary areas. The Journal will represent this dynamism and seeks to provide a platform for publication of studies from academics, teachers of law and law students.

We invite articles that are research-based and also address how Legal  English and language is taught in various English language learning contexts. Additionally, new literature will be reviewed to keep readers informed of advances in the field.

We invite you to contribute to The International Journal of Legal English, access the site regularly and provide feedback on what you read.
