Brave New World: Roles and Ethics for Court Interpreters
Presented by:
Carla Mathers
Date: 09/11/10– 09/12/10
This seminar is designed to present an initial discussion about court and legal interpreting by focusing on assign­ments that may appear to be community assignments but which have legal overtones. The seminar will delineate and define legal interpreting as distinguished from court inter­preting. The seminar will describe the prerequisites that a generalist interpreter should possess prior to interpreting in court or other legal settings. The class will set forth the concepts that form the building blocks for accurate and ethical court and legal interpreting. The seminar will ex­plore the roles of court interpreters, as sculpted through case law decisions and selected ethical provisions that affect the court interpreter’s role. The participants review, dis­cuss, analyze and role play situations based upon the infor­mation presented. The roles of the proceedings interpreter, the table (monitor) interpreter and the witness interpreter will be examined, studied and practiced through mediated small group work.
