Legal training – Introduction

September 22 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Are you a RSLI or TSLI looking to specialise in Legal Interpreting in the near future?​ ​

Would you like a taster of how things work within the Legal domain to  enhance your general practice in another setting?​

​Perhaps you have been nervous of Legal Interpreting?​ ​Have you wondered about the etiquette and processes in court?

Topics covered include:
● The Interpreter Oath
● Court settings and the roles of the Sign Language Interpreter/Deaf Relay/Deaf Intermediary
● Assertiveness and control of the courtroom environment
● Interpreting the intent and meaning of cross examination through nuance, and ambiguity

This workshop can be used as a refresher for those experienced within Legal Interpreting and as a stepping stone for others. As well as championing a holistic interactive approach it includes real case studies and dilemmas to encourage active participation and a lively and thought provoking opportunity to reflect and learn. ​A follow on workshop will be made available in 2019​.

❏ Worth 6 CPD Structured Learning points
