Forensic Linguistics Colloquium at AAAL

Portland, Oregon

22nd Mar 2014 – 25th Mar 2014

The following colloquium will be presented at the 2014 AAAL (American Association of Applied Linguists) conference in Portland, Oregon

Forensic Linguistic Experts: Unique Challenges in North American Court Systems

This colloquium focuses on applying linguistic expertise in legal cases. It emphasizes the “nuts and bolts” of doing case work, not linguistic analyses, thus can be of potential interest to a range of applied linguists. The colloquium can 1) prepare experienced linguists for their first casework; and 2) introduce possible content for various professional development settings, including applied linguistics programs.
