English has become the international language of trade and commerce. It is not surprising, therefore, that English has also become the international language of the legal transaction. The aim of the book is to offer students, and all those involved with the practice of the law, practical assistance in using English legal terminology.
Helen Gubby studied law in England where she was called to the bar. She has worked in the Netherlands as a legal translator and lawyer and now lectures on legal English and business law at the Erasmus University Rotterdam.
