The differences between the two tracks are subtle but important. Participants should choose a track that is most appropriate to their experience.

The Novice 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 Advanced 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 novice track is a criminal case and the Advanced 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 witness testify.

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