Interesting topic. And it applies even more broadly than just the legal field. There are many examples that the art of "spin" and the science of language are emerging as a crucial tool in communicating with the masses. "Death Tax" for estate tax is one example amongst many. For a fascinating discussion on this topic see the book "Whose Freedom?: The Battle Over America's Most Important Idea" by George Lakoff (full disclosure - he writes from a fairly liberal perspective, so don't read it if you are not interested in being exposed to that viewpoint.)
