Focus: The International Summer School in Forensic Linguistic Analysis addresses topics to do with the role, shape and evidential value of language in legal and forensic contexts. It was created in response to a growing demand for a course affording an overview of forensic linguistics while also laying solid foundations for a further study of this relatively new branch of applied linguistics.

Minimum Education Level: Undergraduate


Description:
The summer school addresses subjects within the broadly defined discipline of forensic linguistics, including the structure of legal language, forensic authorship attribution, copyright issues, plagiarism and its detection, and forensic phonetics. We work with authentic language data and use real cases to illustrate theory. We opt for maximum student involvement and encourage critical inquiry and debate.
