The Centre for Research in Language and Law (CRILL) is holding its 4th international conference, entitled “Law, Language and Communication:
negotiating cultural, jurisdictional and disciplinary boundaries” from 26 to 28 May 2016, in Italy, at the Royal Palace of Caserta (National School of Public Administration).
The biennial conference attracts a wide spectrum of scholars and professionals from the fields of language and the law, as well as other related areas.
This second post includes a further selection of papers from the conference Law, Language and Professional Practice held in Caserta last week. Apologies to all those whose presentations have not been included here – there were two or three parallel sessions at the conference, and it was impossible to attend all of them. However, the full book of abstracts can be downloaded.
Today, dear readers, I offer you a report from the conference “Law, Language and Professional Practice“, held last week in Caserta, near Naples, Italy, and attended by delegates from every continent. The book of abstracts can be downloaded from the conference website.
I have made a subjective selection of presentations, aiming to give you an idea of the wide range of topics covered. The conference was attended by scholars, advocates, translators, interpreters, teachers of legal language, and government officials, amongst others.
