Essiential Criminal Proceedure Concepts for Judiciary Interpreters
A bulk of the court interpreter’s work takes place in criminal contexts. Much criminal law and procedure is governed by constitutional principles as interpreted by the Supreme Court. This course provides an analysis of criminal settings from arrest through trial which are commonly encountered in interpreted settings. The course is non-language specific and can benefit any judiciary interpreter in any language pair. Participants engage in required in-class discussion, small group application within their language groups, and hands on text analysis and interpretation.
