IAFL Policy on regional conferences

One of the primary goals of IAFL is the encouragement of meetings and seminars where topics in forensic linguistics can be discussed. As part of this commitment the IAFL facilitates the organisation of the biennial meeting.  The IAFL executive committee, however, wishes also to encourage further meetings, which may be smaller in scale and may be designed to attract delegates on a regional rather than a worldwide basis.

The IAFL executive welcomes discussions with any members thinking of arranging regional meeting and can offer different types of support to such meetings. To access the IAFL policy on regional conferences click below.

IAFL Code of Practice 

Please note the Code is intended to serve as a guide to its members and is made public so that others may be aware of recommended standards for professional and ethical practice in forensic linguistics. As an association whose membership comprises mostly academics and whose officers are volunteers with no paid staff, IAFL does not have enforcement capacity with respect to its Code of Practice.
