Synopsis

Language plays an essential role both in creating law and in governing its implementation. Providing an accessible and comprehensive introduction to this subject, Language and Law: * describes the different registers and genres that make up spoken and written legal language and how they develop over time; * analyses real-life examples drawn from court cases from different parts of the world, illustrating the varieties of English used in the courtroom by speakers occupying different roles; * addresses the challenges presented to our notions of law and regulation by online communication; * discusses the complex role of translation in bilingual and multilingual jurisdictions, including Hong Kong and Canada; and * provides readings from key scholars in the discipline, including Lawrence Solan, Peter Goodrich, Marianne Constable, David Mellinkoff, and Chris Heffer. With a wide range of activities throughout, this accessible textbook is essential reading for anyone studying language and law or forensic linguistics.
