An exciting, groundbreaking curriculum, this three-day legal interpreter training is the only national program for legal interpreting in community settings. The training manual for THE LANGUAGE OF JUSTICE was authored by four experts across the country, including an attorney as well specialists in legal and community interpreting. The lead author is Isabel Framer, former Chair of the National Association of Judiciary Interpreters and Translators. The curriculum includes an overview of the legal interpreting profession, requirements and procedures, a model code of ethics and standards of practice, linguistic mediation techniques, legal terminology and an overview of the U.S. legal system.
Designed for court and community interpreters, this unique curriculum was developed by the authors with the support of a team of attorneys, national interpreting experts, two law professors, legal services agencies and nonprofit community services.
This program includes a certificate and is approved by the American Translators Association for 10 ATA CEPs, by the National Association of Judiciary Interpreters and Translators for 10 NAJIT CEUs and by the Maryland Court Interpreter Program for 20 CE credits.
