This volume contributes to the latest studies in legal discourse studies by presenting a descriptive and interpretive analysis of English legal genres used in academic and professional writing contexts. The results of corpora-driven data are discussed through (meta)discourse, genre and other theoretical perspectives, and offer insights into the ways the writers' discursive practices and meanings shape their membership to the legal community and discipline. The volume attempts to show these ideas in systematic and clear language, and is designed for native and non-native readers whether involved in English applied linguistic research or disciplinary English writing instruction.
