If Lawyers Talk as They Write: “I Am Not An Idiot”

I have received another letter in legalese English today. A one-page letter with ten (“10”) definitions in it.

Don´t do that.

That is what I have learned in my first job as an auxiliary clerk of German Federal Judge Hans-Ulrich Wedershoven:

“Mr. Schweiger, we first spend 4 years at university for learning how to write and understand legalese language. We have to put much effort into not using it in our daily practice.”
