From November 30th until December 1st 2022, the round table "LADO as Forensic Expert Evidence" organised by the University of Berne’s Center for the Study of Language and Society (CSLS) in collaboration with the SEM’s LINGUA unit, took place in Bern. This was the first event in Switzerland where specialists in linguistic analyses for the determination of origin (LADO) were able to meet Swiss specialists from various other forensic fields. One of the aims of the round table was to create a network between practitioners from different disciplines and discuss various specific topics that are important for everyday practice. In addition, the participation of a guest speaker who has been working on the role of forensic experts for many years, Prof. Gary Edmond of the University of New South Wales, provided very interesting elements and added value to the conversation.
