  • Author Information

    Marta Baffy

    Marta Baffy is a lawyer and linguist who has over a decade of English as a Second Language (ESL) teaching experience both in the United States and abroad. In the Two-Year LL.M. Program at Georgetown Law, she prepares students linguistically and intellectually for legal study in the U.S., using her expertise in ESL teaching methodology and drawing on her own experiences as a lawyer/former law student. Professor Baffy’s research interests lie at the intersection of law and linguistics, particularly in the contexts of the courtroom and legal classroom. Her most recent work focuses on how foreign-trained attorneys are socialized into the culture of a U.S. law school during classroom interactions.
