RE: New Electronic Newsletter:
Language in the Judicial Process
DATE: April 28, 1995
This is the first call for bibliographic items to be included in a new
electronic newsletter on Language and Law, LANGUAGE IN THE
JUDICIAL PROCESS. The Newsletter will be maintained on a
World Wide Web homepage. The first issues will list current
bibliography, cite relevant legal cases, etc. One goal of the
Newsletter is to continue the fine tradition begin by Judith N. Levi,
whose bibliographical work on language and law over several years
culminated in the publication of her 1994 book, Language and Law.
For the title of the newsletter, I am indebted to Judith and also to
Anne Graffam Walker; their pioneering work in proposing both the
1985 Georgetown University conference, "Language in the Judicial
Process," and its 1990 proceedings volume, constituted a substantial
contribution to the developing field of forensic linguistics. I use the
name "Language in the Judicial Process" with their permission.
If you have authored or know about items you want included, please
send me complete bibliographic citations (including full first names,
please). The preferred style is that of the LSA Style Sheet. The
deadline for receipt of items for the first issue is Monday, May 15.
Items may be submitted by e-mail. by fax, or by post:
E-mail to dumasb[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]utkvx.utk.edu
FAX TO Bethany K. Dumas

Post to Bethany K. Dumas

Later, I hope the expand to Newsletter to include abstracts and
summaries. If you have abstracts or summaries of items to submit,
please send them--now or later.
In addition, I solicit offprints or other copies of manuscript or
published items to be maintained in a permanent file in my office at
The University of Tennessee.
