Posted on the 7th May 2013 in the category Press Release
The IAFL Executive Committee is pleased to make available to members a draft Code of Practice that provides "principles of ethical conduct (...) intended to guide those members of the International Association of Forensic Linguists who engage in forensic linguistic research and legal consulting and testimony."
This Code of Practice was produced by a Drafting Committee through the examination of Codes of Practice used by comparable organisations, and careful consideration of the relevant issues for forensic linguists engaged in this work. For this work the IAFL EC is grateful to the members of that Committee, being Ron Butters, Tim Grant, Le Cheng and Georgina Heydon. In addition, Ed Finegan and Peter Gray of the Executive Committee have also offered very wise and helpful advice. We also acknowledge the work put in by Krzysztof Kredens to make this draft available to members through the IAFL website.
