                                       Language in the Negotiation of Justice
                               Contexts, Issues and Applications

Edited by Christopher Williams, University of Foggia, Italy and Girolamo Tessuto, Second University of Naples, Italy 

 

‘Applying the expertise and tools of corpus linguistics, discourse analysis, and sociolinguistics, the authors of this interesting melange of essays analyse and discuss a number of legal spheres in a wide variety of countries, including both civil and common law jurisdictions. The volume is a useful and often engaging addition to the growing literature on the intersection between language and the law.’– Peter Tiersma, Loyola Law School, USA

 

This book explores the ways language is used by the professional legal community for the communication of its main business – the negotiation of justice – in today’s globalized world. The volume addresses three main aspects of language use in the negotiation of justice. Beginning with the legal contexts of litigation, arbitration and mediation, the book moves on to discuss the main issues identified in those contexts and finally it explores the applications of legal linguistics. The book is a valuable resource for those in the legal community wishing to increase their understanding of the use of language for the negotiation of justice.
