This work represents a very useful idea as a number of LLB students today have not had the opportunity of learning enough English to allow them to follow their curriculum rendered in English.
Dr. Kavita Surabhi, currently teaching Legal Hindi Language in Amity Law School, Amity University, Noida. A Ph.D in Hindi from Delhi University she is currently pursuing LL.B. Dr. Kavita Surabhi has published regularly on social and cultural matters.
Bar Council has introduced Hindi legal language as a compulsory Indian Language Paper. Many universities now include this as a compulsory paper as well as provide practical training for students in Hindi.
Also the Hindi Legal language (as used in drafts & legal documents) is very particular and distinct from the language as it is spoken. Students & young practioners find this tough and are uncomfortable.
The proposed book aspires to cater to this need of the students and professionals practicing in the lower courts where Hindi is the language of the proceedings.
The book LEGAL LANGUAGE, LEGAL VOCABULARY AND LEGAL WRITING (Hindi) is constructed as per the syllabus of the Hindi Language Paper of various Law Colleges eg Gautam Buddha University School of Law, Justice and Governance, Chawdhury Charan Singh University, IP University, Amity University. (Amity University now conducts a moot in Hindi)
The book also caters to requirements of the clinical papers as well as aims to meet requirements during internships.
The book comprises
1. A study of the Language of the Constitution
2. Legal Terminology
3. Hindi, Arbi and Parsi words used in courts
4. Use of legal terms and idiomatic expressions
5. Language skills like comprehension & précis writing
6. Grammar of the language
