The seventh edition of the Summer Institute of Jurilinguistics will take place on Friday August 30th 2013, from 8:30-4:15, at the Faculty of Law of McGill University (New Chancellor Day Hall, 3644 Peel Street, Montreal, Canada).
It is my great pleasure to introduce a guest report on the Sixth Summer Institute of Jurilinguistics held at the end of August, written by Jean Leclercq, co-author of the erudite and multifaceted blog Le mot juste en anglais.
Leclercq trained both in literature and the law, and worked as a translator, from English and Spanish to French, at the headquarters of the World Health Organization in Geneva for 26 years. Retirement hasn’t stopped him translating, often on a voluntary basis, and keeping extremely active through various linguistic and online activities amongst others. A vous Jean !
Entrance is free but registration is mandatory. You can sign up today on the university website: http://www.mcgill.ca/centre-crepeau/registration/.
