This work combines a theoretical approach to legal translation with a practical exposition of how relevant principles may be applied to the French legal system. In two introductory chapters, the author discusses what is meant by "legal language" and goes on to describe the techniques available for translating legal terms. The remaining chapters provide a detailed account of the French legal system.

Part 1 Theoretical and practical approaches to translation: the linguistic issues; translation methodology; the business of legal translation. Part 2 The French legal system - putting translation principles into practice: French law and English law and their branches; legislation; the courts; the legal professions; the investigation, prosecution and punishment of crime.
