Abstract:

Drawing on representative corpora of transcripts from over 100 English
criminal jury trials, this stimulating new book explores the nature of
'legal-lay discourse', or the language used by legal professionals before
lay juries. Careful analyses of genres such as witness examination and the
judge's summing-up reveal a strategic tension between a desire to persuade
the jury and the need to conform to legal constraints. The book also
suggests ways of managing this tension linguistically to help, not hinder,
the jury.
