Law may be thought of not just as a mode of social ordering but also as involving communicative acts irrevocably linked to the pursuit of justice. This book draws together experts in law and language from around the world, and signals that multijural and multilinguistic settings present rich laboratories for research in legal translation and legal lexicography. There is a strong presence of Canadian authors and of international scholars citing Canadian examples in this collection, inviting the question, is the Canadian jurilinguist - living entre langues et droits - a middle power, like Canada itself?
