Legal Discourse in Multilingual and Multicultural Contexts: Arbitration Texts in Europe


Add your own review!

Overview

This volume presents the results of an International research project focussing on the lexico-grammatical, generic and textual analysis of legal discourse in multilingual and multicultural contexts. The particular focus of the investigation is the arbitration discourse in use in several European countries. This volume deals with the international arbitration discourse of legal documents in use in the Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Scotland and Sweden. For each of the countries involved, a comparison has been carried out between the local arbitration law and the UNCITRAL Model Law approved by the United Nations in 1985. The English language text of this Model Law has then been compared with the local language text of the arbitration law of each country and any discrepancies have been investigated in order to identify possible differences in the legal cultures underlying the two texts.
