Meeting Description:

The School addresses subjects within the broadly defined discipline of forensic
linguistics, including the structure of legal language, forensic authorship
attribution, copyright issues, plagiarism and its detection, and forensic
phonetics. We work with authentic language data and use real cases to illustrate

Founded in 2000 by Prof. Malcolm Coulthard, the International Summer School in
Forensic Linguistic Analysis addresses topics to do with the role, shape and
evidential value of language in legal and forensic contexts. It was created in
response to a growing demand for a course affording an overview of forensic
linguistics while also laying solid foundations for a further study of this
relatively new branch of applied linguistics.

The School's first edition took place at Anglia Polytechnic University and was
followed by four more events in Birmingham and one in Lodz, Poland. Since 2006
the School has been held at Aston University. This year's edition will run from
29 June to 3 July and will immediately precede the biennial conference of the
International Association of Forensic Linguists, to take place in Amsterdam from
6 to 9 July.
