International Legal Linguistics Workshop (ILLWS20)


The third International Legal Linguistics Workshop (ILLWS20) will take place online and will be organised by the Austrian Association for Legal Linguistics (AALL).

Due to the high number of submissions, the workshop has been extended to two days. It will take place on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th December 2020 via Zoom.
