The fourth International Legal Linguistics Workshop (ILLWS21) will be organised by the Austrian Association for Legal Linguistics (AALL) as part of the 46th Austrian Linguistics Conference.

Call for Papers:

The focus of the workshop is legal linguistics. It will primarily address, but is not limited to, questions such as:
- How can theoretical and applied legal linguistics contribute to solving linguistic challenges in legal and business contexts?
- Which arenas of cooperation and conflict exist for lawyers and linguists?
- How can a multi-layered approach to discourse analysis be related to language practices in sensitive human rights contexts?
- Which impact does computational creativity and emotional artificial intelligence have on language use in the legal system?
- How can the study of metapragmatics in legal contexts contribute to identifying indexical and ideological phenomena?
- Which role do research associations play in the promotion and development of legal linguistics across the globe?
- Is legal linguistics undergoing a process of fragmentation in Europe?
- What are the effects of the SARS-CoV-2 (‘Corona’) outbreak on medico-legal communication? Which role do text trajectories play in emergency and intensive medical care settings?
- Can legal linguistics contribute to legal language teaching in law schools? If so, how?
