USLawEssentials Law & Language

The USLawEssentials Law & Language Podcast, co-hosted by Stephen Horowitz (Aichi-ken, 1992-94) helps non-native English speaking lawyers and law students improve their English and better understand US law and American legal culture. Many of these short episodes are tied to a legal news event or case in the United States. Others include interviews with multilingual lawyers (including a number of JET alumni.) The shows are hosted by attorneys experienced teaching US law and legal English to students and lawyers from around the world.

What’s New in the Legal News: Kanye Tweets His Contract

The USLawEssentials What’s New in the Legal News podcast series continues with slightly less new news – – as Stephen Horowitz introduces to Daniel Edelson a story regarding Kanye West tweeting his music contract. Stephen and Daniel discuss contract drafting and what US attorneys mean by “plain English”. We also discuss why learning plain English is different from learning legal English. In addition, Stephen and Daniel talk about a podcast series we like, Contract Teardown – – where experts share insights on contracts, including Kanye’s contract.
