Forensic Linguistics offered at UPF and

competitive centres around the world: the Centre for Forensic
Linguistics at Aston University, the Center for the Study of Law,
Language and Cognition at Brooklyn Law School, the Centre for Language
and Communication Research at Cardiff University, the Department of
Language and Linguistic Science at York University, the Laboratorio de
Acússtica Forense de la Policia Científica and ForensicLab at
