Law at Work

Studies in Legal Ethnomethods

Edited by Baudouin Dupret, Michael Lynch, and Tim Berard

Oxford Studies in Language and Law

  • One of the only two collections that present insights on law from the distinctive analytic traditions of ethnomethodology and conversation analysis.
  • It is the product of an interdisciplinary, international collaboration, featuring a wide variety of recent and previously unpublished work from an overlapping, but substantially different group of scholars than the other collection.
  • Chapters address a number of topics relating to ongoing debates and concerns, including the teaching of 'intelligent design' and creationism; the observable impact of Sharia Law in Egyptian family court; accusations of international violations during the Gaza war.
