Message 1: Call for Paper Proposals, Language & Law

Date: Fri, 24 Jan 92 12:27 EST
From: <DUMASBUTKVX.bitnet>
Subject: Call for Paper Proposals, Language & Law

I am in the final stages of proposing three sessions on Language & Law for
the 1992 Law and Society Ass'n Annual Meeting in Philadelphia May 28-31. I can
consider one additional paper, preferably by a linguist reporting on
analysis in a legal case. I also have room for discussants, each of
whom will be asked to read drafts of papers (4) in advance, then
discuss papers (as a group) following their presentation. If you
want to talk to me about this, please e-mail me (DUMASBUTKVX) of
call my home 615-637-6080 or my office 615-974-6965 SOON. Thanks.
