Law, Language and the Courtroom - Legal Linguistics and the Discourse of Judges, edited by Stanislaw Gozdz Roszkowski and Gianluca Pontrandolfo, explores the language of judges. It is concerned with understanding how language works in judicial contexts.
There are four parts:
- Part 1: Constructing judicial discourse and judicial identities
- Part 2: Judicial argumentation and evaluative language
- Part 3: Judicial interpretation
- Part 4: Clarity in judicial discourse
This edited volume is part of the series “Law, Language and Communication” (series editors Anne Wagner and Vijay K. Bhatia).
It is a must for lawyers and linguists specialising in judicial argumentation and reasoning. Victoria Guillén Nieto, University of Alicante, Spain
