LING 181 - Special Studies in Linguistics: Forensic Linguistics

Semester Hours: 3
This is a case-based approach to solving legal problems through linguistic analysis. Forensic linguistics augments legal analysis by applying scientifically accepted principles of analysis to legal evidence such as confessions, letters, contracts, and recorded speech.  Instructor uses published cases and ones he has been consulted on himself (for example, the identification of a murderer through idiosyncratic writings and the defense of a hedge fund manager through scientific interpretation of FBI covert recordings).
