The "Definition" and the entire article, really, is focused heavily on British English. Much of what is said would have to be changed to apply accurately to American legal English. Perhaps mention that as the last sentence of the Definition section.
You are well come to contribute and improve article legal awareness.
I'm sceptical about the final sentence of the introduction, saying that legal English is "formally referred to as lawspeak or legalese". Isn't it formally referred to as "legal English" but colloquially as "lawspeak" or "legalese"? I have a hard time picturing a formal document such as, well, a legal contract or an Act of Parliament making casual reference to "lawspeak". Binabik80 (talk) 20:31, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
