    This panel will assess the relevance and promise of corpus linguistics as an objective method to determine legal meaning. The keynote speaker, Justice Thomas Lee, is a sitting state supreme court judge who co-authored a Yale Law Journal article that makes the case for corpus analysis. Four papers will be presented in response, drawn from submissions to a call for papers. The presenters are law professors and professors of linguistics, each with a different perspective on the question. The panel will reserve sufficient time for robust dialogue with the audience.

    A virtual business meeting was held prior to the Annual Meeting.
