Dear all,

We are delighted to announce that volume 3.1 of the international bi-annual journal Language and Law / Linguagem e Direito, the bilingual journal on Forensic Linguistics / Language and the Law, has just been published. This is the fifth issue of the journal, entirely dedicated to legal translation. The issue was guest edited by Luciane Fröhlich and includes eight original articles written in English and in Portuguese. The contents list of the journal is reproduced at the end of this message.

The journal is in electronic form and open access. It is available to download free, both from the journal website


and directly from the library of the University of Porto:


This issue was originally planned to include articles on both legal translation and interpreting. However, since we received more contributions, and of a higher quality than anticipated, both the editors and the guest editors (Luciane Fröhlich, in charge of the legal translation issue, and Sandra Hale, in charge of the legal interpreting issue) decided to publish two separate volumes: the present volume (3.1) is therefore focused on legal translation; volume 3.2, which will be published by the end of December 2016, is entirely dedicated to legal interpreting.

We hope that issue 3.1, like its predecessors, pleases the increasing journal audience, both visually and scientifically. We also hope that this issue serves to encourage further submissions from researchers worldwide working in the areas of Forensic Linguistics and Language and Law wanting to share their research with the wider academic community through the journal pages. We recently announced a call for papers for volume 4.1, which will be published in June 2017. Your contribution is therefore very welcome.

Thank you very much for being part of this new journal.

Happy reading

Malcolm Coulthard & Rui Sousa-Silva (Editors)
