CALL FOR PAPER: LSA Conference Panel: Of Texts, Tweets, Social Media and the Law of Evidence (deadline: October 1, 2013)

LSA Conference Panel: Of Texts, Tweets, Social Media and the Law of Evidence, LSA Annual Meetings 2014

This panel considers the role of communication technology in judicial culture. As texts, status updates, voicemail, email and screenshots migrate into the world of adjudication, what questions and practices attend their use? How do courts receive such evidence as it relates to character, credibility, and corroboration? Drawing on work that spans different legal settings, this panel explores the ways in which evidence drawn from contemporary communication technologies is presented as authentic or shrouded with doubt.

Please send paper abstracts of no more than 250 words to sameena.mulla@marquette.edu by October 1st.
