12th Summer Institute of Jurilinguistics - “Coding/Decoding: Linguistics & Legal Concepts”


Chancellor Day Hall 3644 rue Peel, Montreal, QC, H3A 1W9, CA

The Paul-André Crépeau Centre for Private and Comparative Law, in collaboration with the Network of Jurilinguistics Centres, invites you to attend the 12th Summer Institute of Jurilinguistics.

The theme of this year’s Institute is “Coding/Decoding: Linguistics & Legal Concepts.” This Summer Institute will focus on the significant role that the different aspects of linguistics play in our understanding and use of legal concepts, particularly the capacity of linguistics to respond to the need for access to justice. The ever-evolving nature of concepts, especially in the context of linguistic and legal pluralism, adds a particular dimension to the fundamental mission of jurilinguists, which is to code/decode concepts. How can linguistics help construct a legal discourse that is accessible to litigants? How might linguistics be a tool for legal certainty? Such issues will be discussed through the lens of the different themes that will be explored during the day.

The registration fee for the day is $55. See the program and register.

A request for accreditation for 5h45 of continuing legal education for jurists has been made to a recognized provider.
