Tricky Legal English Words

Can you think of any tricky Legal English words? Those that are not obvious and might have a lot meanings. I’m always happy to meet with students and discuss the challenges they might face when studying Legal English. This time we had a look at some Legal English words that might have a surprising meaning. Thank you to all students from Studenckie Koło Naukowe Anglicus for your great ideas and questions.

⚖️ Some tricky Legal English words:

🗂️ Bundle
👨 Defendant
📩 Service
🤝 To instruct

These words have more than one meaning in everyday English and also in Legal English.

For example: the word defendant has a different meaning in the civil procedure and a different meaning in the criminal procedure.

❔🤨 Do you know both meanings?

Thank you to all the students for being active, asking questions and sharing your experience. It was a pleasure to meet you and I hope we will meet again soon.
