English for international law
Is there a multilingual dictionary of
legal terms for use by international
lawyers and law students? Is there a
consensus about English terms that
are international, not merely
American or British?

Re: English for international law
Your best bet is to triangulate across languages. The problem is that different legal systems use different concepts, not just different words.
There's nothing sacred about the English/American version of legal rules, obligations and responsibilities. You have to go system by system.
