Linguistic Field(s): Forensic Linguistics

Meeting Description:

The aim of this conference is to create the opportunity for scholars working otherwise in different disciplines to share their views and insights into various dimensions underlying contemporary judicial discourse. We wish to bring together lawyers (academics as well as practicioners), political scientists, legal linguists, media specialists, sociologists, etc. to consider a wide range of court-related phenomena and processes. The areas envisaged for scholarly discussion include but are not limited to the following:
– the judicialization of politics;
– the organization and working methods of courts and their impact on judicial discourse;
– the nature and function(s) of judicial dissent;
– media representations of courts and the judicial decision-making process;
– public perceptions of courts;
– courts and their image (communicating with the wider audience);
– judicial and political ways of conflict resolution;
– judicial argumentation;
– persuasive and evaluative concerns in judicial discourse
