This comprehensive introduction to Language and the Law looks at the common areas of interaction between linguistics and the legal process. Each chapter presents a language issue or problem relevant to the law. This is then examined using excerpts from cases where judges in their decisions have had to confront that particular issue. Professor Schane considers each issue both from the legal point of view and from a linguistic point of view, to show how each are relevant to each other. Issues covered include: * Ambiguity * Vagueness * Metaphor * Legal fiction * Presuppositions * Leading questions * Legal hearsay The book requires no previous legal or linguistic background, and all concepts and notions from the two fields are explained in a non-technical manner.

Review:

mention- Book News Inc./ August 2007

'This work is and important addition to the literature on language and the law, and is particularly to be welcomed for extending discussion of the legal relevance of theories of metaphor and speech acts. Schane's analysis is both accessible and lucid.' Christopher Hutton, Journal of Sociolinguistics, 2008.
