The chapters in the book explore aspects of legal-lay communication, or those nodes of interaction where the legal world meets the everyday lifeworld. This may involve instances when people acting for the legal system, from police call-handlers to judges, interact with people encountering the legal process in a lay role, for example, as witnesses and suspects, though this transparent reading of 'legal' and 'lay' is challenged in the book." ;
