課程簡述

Course description

description within 350 words

This course introduces how to use principles and methods in applied linguistics to examine: (1) the language of the legal process, and (2) language as evidence. The course looks at legal language, the structures of legal genres and the collection and testing of evidence from the initial police interview to examination and cross-examination in the courtroom, the role of the forensic linguist, the forensic phonetician and the document examiner. We begin with case studies led by the instructor. The participants are guided to discuss and debate on the legal, criminal, medical, aviation, trademark, and political issues raised in the case studies. After learning to collect information and analyze the cases collaboratively, the participants are encouraged to identify their own issues and present their own analyses.
