"Interpreting depositions for beginning judiciary interpreters"
Depositions are a key part of the American legal system, and oftentimes court interpreters are required for these proceedings, which are typically held at law firms. However, relatively little has traditionally been written about the role of interpreters in depositions and how these proceedings actually work. This webinar will provide an overview of the structure of depositions, the parties, the objectives, the challenges, etc. Attendees will receive plenty of real-life advice on exactly what to expect during the course of the deposition from a federally certified Spanish interpreter who has done more than 800 depositions, and who wishes she had known how this all works before she did her first deposition. The webinar will be presented in English and is thus suitable for interpreters of all languages.
