About this Event

Observer Registration

Observer Rate: $125

CEUs sponsored by Hallenross & Associates, LLC

In order to receive CEUs, both days must be in attendance and a completed evaluation of the content

This year's Legal Training is virtual and therefore we are able to provide an opportunity we have not had the ability to do with an onsite training due to physical limitations of the facility. We are opening up the workshop to observers with a reduced rate and opportunity to receive CEUs. Our partnership with Stetson University College of Law makes our training like no other. ITP students and anyone interested in legal interpreting is welcome to be an observer in this unique experience of seeing interpreters working in a "virtual" legal setting (and no one goes to jail!). Observers can select between two tracks:

  • Advanced - Interpreters with courtroom experience
  • Novice - Interpreters wanting courtroom experience

Observation Guidelines:

  • Selection of a track must be made in advance.
  • Observers will not be able to engage in discussions, but every effort will be made to answer questions during the weekend and after the training by email.
  • Must commit to attend both days of the training in order to receive CEUs.
  • No one day or half day rates.

NO REFUNDS after February 20, 2021

Registration closes on Saturday, February 26, 2021 by Midnight EST

The differences between the two tracks are subtle but important. Participants should choose a track that is most appropriate to their experience. The track for those wanting legal experience focuses on common vocabulary, on a criminal case (which is more typical of the work interpreters do) and preparing for spoken witness testimony. The track for those with legal experience, focuses on a complex civil case, note-taking and consecutive interpreting of Deaf witness testimony.

Both tracks are challenging, one track is a criminal case and the other track is a civil case with live witness testimony. The decision to make is whether you are ready to handle consecutive interpreting of a Deaf witness or to interpret for hearing witnesses testify.

Regardless of which track you choose, the training and live courtroom experience is tremendously valuable.
