Abstract

As international or global language, English has played its vital role as a means of international communication for many years. Most of people over the world have used it in many international business transactions. In term of legal transactions, for example, English has been used in legal contract. Paying attention to this use of English in contract, it is important for the EFL learners of law students to master contract English (English used in contract), because the knowledge of contract is closely dealt with contract law, a subject that the law students have to take for their study in law faculty. To meet their need to master contract English, it is certainly necessary for the EFL teachers, especially those who are teaching at law faculty, to be able to provide the teaching materials concerning English used in contract. In discussing English used in contract, this paper will firstly address its discussion on an understanding of what contract is. In addition, it explores and describes the lexical and grammatical features of English used in contract. Finally, this paper presents an example of teaching materials developed from such lexical and grammatical features of English used in contract.
