In this Article I offer a lawyer's view of what law and linguistics interdisciplinary studies might mean for legal practice, as well as a legal theorist's view of what importance they may hold for jurisprudence. I do not pretend to have more than cursory knowledge about linguistics, and so my remarks about what linguistics scholars might gain from an interdisciplinary exchange necessarily will be brief and general.
