Matching legalese with plain English meanings

Please purchase the course before starting the lesson.

Legalese is the special language used by, and for, lawyers. It is often difficult for non-lawyers to understand.

It is important to be able to understand legalese. However, where possible plain English is preferred when writing legal documents.
