Lawyer and Language
By Bo Wennstrom
Lawyers have long been the object of criticism and satire for the incomprehensibility of their language. The Lawyer and Language provides a theoretical account of the legal language. In focus is the relationship of the lawyer to language. Topics include: Illusory Intelligibility, The Dilemma of Formalism, Ekelof/Ross vs. Wittgenstein, Grammatical Reading vs. Effective Reading, The Tsesis Case and others.
