Editorial: Language and Law





Language, language laws, language of the court, language rights, copyright law


Initiated against the backdrop of the NWU Faculty of Law's inaugural "Justice in Practice" colloquium in March 2022, this collection of articles represents an independent and meticulously scrutinised body of work. While inspired by the colloquium's overarching theme, each contribution has undergone a rigorous, blind peer review process, ensuring scholarly rigor and individual merit. The colloquium served as a catalyst for exploring unchartered territories in language and law research, emphasising the global South's unique perspective enriched by multilingualism and multiculturalism. In the complex tapestry of human society, the dynamic interplay between language and the legal domain emerges as a dynamic and evolving field demanding scholarly exploration and understanding.
