Description

At this ‘Legislative Drafting and Language’ Workshop, scholars and experts in the field of law, legislative drafting, and linguistics will explore the research space around law and language focusing on the gender-neutral strategies adopted by drafters in various jurisdictions. Our ambition is to envisage ‘a way forward’ in legislative drafting and to generate ideas that might challenge prevailing practices and beliefs, to cross the traditional boundaries of disciplines such as law and linguistics, and eventually to interact successfully with scholars from different fields. 

This seminar is organised in collaboration with the Association of English Studies in Italy (AIA) and the Department of Political Science and International Relations, University of Palermo
