Workshop Description:

The “role” of a legal interpreter is better defined by the “function” they play in the legal process.  This workshop will address the various functions of the legal interpreter, how that is played out in the courtroom and when those roles, or functions, overlap creating conflicts. Additionally, it addresses the protocol of each function before, during and after the assignment.

Educational Objectives:

At the end of this workshop participants will be able to:

  • Define the function of the Proceedings interpreter, Table Interpreter, Investigative Interpreter and Witness Interpreter
  • Explain the protocol for each of the functions in a courtroom
  • List the ways in which each overlap and when they create a conflict
