Levi, Judith N.
This bibliography is intended for anyone who is interested in learning about language and law, including those in the legal profession or legal education, linguistics students, political science students, judges, advocates, and laypeople. The document provides bibliographic information about social science research on language in the judicial process and analyzes the language spoken in legal settings, the language written for legal purposes, and laws that are about language. A second component of the document consists of the contributions of linguistics and language scientists to the resolution of actual legal cases. (RJC)
