Collaborative Research Networks
Janet E. Ainsworth, Lawrence M. Solan
The purpose of this CRN is to formalize and expand the international network of scholars (linguists and others) who have organized and participated in sessions on language and law since 1990, when the first sessions on Language and Law were scheduled at the Law and Society Association Annual Meeting. Such formalization is intended to provide a forum in which language scholars (linguists, interpreters, translators, and others) and legal scholars and lawyers can together contribute to a fuller understanding of the complex role of language in the judicial systems of the world. Our overall aim will be to focus broadly on the key role of language in judicial process at all levels.
