Stephen C. Mouritsen '10

New York City associate Stephen C. Mouritsen published another corpus linguistics article, this time in the most recent issue of the Columbia Science and Technology Law Review.

This Cravath, Swaine & Moore attorney--and BYU 2010 law graduate--argues that the legal interpretation of a word's meaning can best be empirically determined in Hard Cases and Hard Data: Assessing Corpus Linguistics as an Empirical Path to Plain Meaning.

His prior article, The Dictionary is Not a Fortress: Definitional Fallacies and a Corpus-Based Approach to Plain Meaning, 2010 BYU Law Review 1915-1979, was cited last summer by Adam Liptak in a New York Times article on plain meaning and statutory construction.
