Abstract: The University of the South Pacific has long been conscious that English is a second language for many of its students, and that this creates special challenges for teaching and learning. In law, where language is often technical and needs to be used with great precision these challenges are particularly apparent. This article, which is based upon the author.s experiences in teaching at the University of the South Pacific, discusses different approaches to the teaching of legal writing, and identifies some strategies for improving teaching and learning in this area.
