Some fabulous IAFL keynotes coming up!

IAFL keynote speakersThe IAFL 2019 Conference will include a thought-provoking and engaging programme of keynote presentations representing academic scholarship, professional legal and language practice, law enforcement and the judiciary on the International Association of Forensic Linguists conference theme of Access to Justice through Language. I’m proud to say I’ll be one of them!

Find all the speakers and titles below

As for me, I’ll be recounting the story of Australian linguists’ Call to Action, asking the judiciary to review and reform the legal handling of indistinct covert recordings used was evidence in criminal trials.

And don’t forget all the workshops that will be running at IAFL, for lawyers, teachers and linguists. Here’s a poster, if you have space to put it up somewhere.

And all that does not even mention the conference program itself! Hope to see you there.
