A discussion titled ‘is it possible to obtain justice in a language or dialect that is not your own?’ was held on ABC radio’s Big Ideas programme last week. The discussion panel consisted of law experts, human rights experts and linguists, including Diane Eades, Tim McNamara, Simon Rice and Helen Watchirs. I haven’t had a chance to listen to the discussion yet, but thought I’d share it anyway. It looks very promising. The comments at the bottom of the page are worth a read too. You can listen to or download the discussion here.
