Bibliography of Books on Language and Law

This bibliography contains some of the more important books on language and law.  The list uses both legal and linguistic citation formats, but there should be enough information in all cases to find any relevant source.

Articles are not included because the list would become too long.  For a good listing that includes articles, go to the IAFL website.

Entries are in alphabetical order.

If you know of other books (not single articles in journals) that should be included, especially materials not in English, please send the relevant information to
