Summer Institute of Jurilinguistics - Language, Law and Otherness - July 11, 2014

CLICK TO ZOOM - 8th Jurilinguistics InstituteThe Paul-André Crépeau Centre for Private and Comparative Law is pleased to announce the 8th Summer Institute of Jurilinguistics, organized in collaboration with the other members of the Network of Jurilinguistic Centres.

The theme of this year’s Institute is “Language, Law and Otherness” which will allow participants to reflect on justice and our relations to others through the lenses of legal language, legal interpretation and legal translation, as well as linguistic rights.

Methodologies for legal translation as well as issues regarding the different meanings of legal terms in foreign languages will be discussed from a European perspective. This will provide comparative perspectives and exchanges. Practical and theoretical issues with respect to translating legal decisions, commentaries and legislation will also be examined. The Institute will also allow participants to study questions of legislative interpretation, as well as problems regarding linguistic rights from an aboriginal perspective, and finally language policy issues from a philosophical point of view.

This 8thSummer Institute of Jurilinguistics will thus offer an opportunity to exchange ideas on legal translation and interpretation, access to justice and protection of linguistic rights with the benefit of European and Canadian perspectives.

Registration, which includes breaks, lunch and the reception, is $40. View the program below.

A request for continuing legal education accreditation has been made to the Barreau du Québec.
