Title: Sociolinguistics and the Legal Process
Written By: Diana Eades
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847692535
Series Title: MM Textbooks
Description:

Sociolinguistics and the Legal Process is an introduction to language, law
and society for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students. Its
central focus is the exploration of what sociolinguistic research can tell
us about how language works and doesn’t work in the legal process. Written
for readers who may not have prior knowledge of sociolinguistics or the
law, the book has an accessible style combined with discussion questions
and exercises as well as topics for assignments, term papers, theses and
dissertations. A wide range of legal contexts are investigated, including
courtroom hearings, police interviews, lawyer interviews as well as small
claims courts, mediation, youth justice conferencing and indigenous courts.
The final chapter looks at how sociolinguists can contribute to the legal
process: as expert witnesses, through legal education, and through
investigating the role of language in the perpetuation of inequality in and
through the legal process.
