There is a growing interest in the theme 'courtroom discourse' in both the academic field and the legal professionals. The appeal of this workshop will show the actionable knowledge it could bring to this field of research and practice. The workshop will reflect the interdisciplinary nature of law and discourse study in courtroom.
