Go to eVVZ for Mr Green's current lectures.


Daniel Green completed a BA in English and American studies and a teaching degree (Mag.phil.) in English and History at the University of Vienna, as well as a degree in Law (LL.M) at the University of Edinburgh. He is also a lecturer at the Centre for Teacher Education and has contributed to research seminars on methods of computer-assisted statutory interpretation at the Department of Constitutional and Administrative Law at the University of Vienna. Daniel is the founding president of the Austrian Association for Legal Linguistics (AALL), a non-profit scientific organisation striving for excellence in the investigation of language use in legal contexts. Before joining the Vienna University of Economics and Business in February 2022, Daniel worked as student tutor for phonetics at the Department of English at the University of Vienna and taught English, history and law at a secondary school for adult education. He has organised numerous projects and events promoting legal literacy, access to justice and human rights. Daniel has also completed an internship with the state prosecution service in Vienna.

In his PhD project, Daniel investigates discourses of indeterminacy in Austrian criminal proceedings. He explores how a jurisprudentially informed quantitative and qualitative analysis of linguistic data from legal practice can extend our understanding of language in the criminal process. 

Research Interests

Daniel’s research interests include the intersections of language, law and business at the semantics-pragmatics interface, through the lens of applied (legal) linguistics. His current research focuses on judicial discourse in past and present, and the question as to how insights from legal linguistics and forensic linguistics can contribute to tackling real-life challenges in legal contexts, such as police interviewing and courtroom communication.
