Abstract

The Research Hub for Language in Forensic Evidence has recently been established in the School of Languages and Linguistics at The University of Melbourne, with the aim of assisting the courts to ensure that language and speech used in forensic evidence is managed in the best interests of justice and fairness. This article outlines the Hub’s unique history, and articulates its goal of facilitating active collaboration between scholars of linguistics and judicial officers.
