Legal literacy was used to refer to an aspect of professional legal education. To be legally literate meant that you were capable of reading and writing the legal arguments, briefs, opinions, judgments and legislation that contribute to the body of law. This is a “literal” definition of legal literacy as being “literate in name the law”. Used in this sense, legal literacy is primarily a concern of legal writing programs in law schools that teach students to think, and communicate “like lawyers”.
