Resumen: The focus of Legal Linguistics (Rechtslinguistik) has shifted from lexical, syntactic and terminological issues to expert-lay communication. This volume focuses on popularisation as a method of knowledge mediation in the law. It deals with different forms of communication (e.g., explanatory videos, brochures, websites), addressees (e.g., children, adolescents, adults), topics (e.g., empathy, emotions, trust), settings (e.g., courts, law firms, EU institutions), and finally, specific areas of law (e.g., inheritance law, criminal law, environmental law). The contributions, written in German and English, discuss theoretical issues and apply them practically to the corpus. The book is stimulating for anyone wanting to delve more deeply into the topic of popularisation.
