Abstract:
			
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.
