Language in the Legal Process, Paperback / softback Book

Language in the Legal Process Paperback / softback

Edited by J. Cotterill



Linguists and lawyers from a range of countries and legal systems explore the language of the law and its participants, beginning with the role of the forensic linguist in legal proceedings, either as expert witness or in legal language reform.

Subsequent chapters analyze different aspects of language and interaction in the chain of events from a police emergency call through the police interview context and into the courtroom, as well as appeal court and alternative routes to justice.

A broad-based, coherent introduction to the discourse of language and law.
