Doubletalk: The Problems and Pitfalls of Bilingual Lawyering (September 2018)

Conversationally fluent in a second language and think that using that language would be a quick and easy way to benefit your legal work? Not so fast! Bilingual lawyering is often much more difficult than it seems, as discussed by the panelists in Young OGEMID's eighth virtual symposium. During this discussion, academics and practitioners from around the world discuss the problems associated with bilingual lawyering and how to move from conversational fluency to legal and business fluency.

  • Veronica Taylor (Professor, Australia National University)
