I am required to write about a discourse community and I wasn't sure if Law and being a Legal assistant is in that category and how I would approach to giving logos, ethos and pathos examples.

A discourse community is a group of people involved in communicating about a particular topic , issue or in a particular field . 

Characteristic of a discourse community -

1) They have agreed to a set of common public goals -

A group of soldiers has a goal to protect an outpost, a group of pilots have a goal to fly and land every plane safely , a group of civil engineers have a goal to construct the road or building or bridge such that it meets the standards . 

2) They have mechanisms for communication (interncommunkcation between members )

Anything that is needed or is needed to be told gets passed through messages , emails , chatting , blogs , sites etc . Meetings are arranged and gatherings are addressed . 

3) A discourse community utilizes different types of genres or different methods of communication to furtherance of its aims . -

A discourses community consists of bother novices and experts in suitable levels , because if any one percentage is very less or does not exist then the community will cease to exist . Both newcomers and established ones needs to be there in healthy levels .
