2024 Legal Interpreting Training Registration is Now Open!

Limited to 30 participants in one Advanced Track!

This 3-day workshop is 2-days of preparation for a 3rd all-day mock trial experience as it exists in today's court system. The courtroom is limited to 30 participants in one Advanced track.

ALERT: The first 24 participants to register will be "hands up" for the mock trial on Sunday, and the remaining 6 participants will observe the mock trial on Sunday. All 30 participants will be training together Friday and Saturday.

There is no Novice Track at this time; we will focus on one Advanced track only in March 2024.

Topics vary for each track and may include case file analysis, terminology, interacting with the courts, and witness testimony. This workshop does not provide training on teaming strategies for Deaf and Hearing teams, nor does it prepare interpreters as agents for social or systemic change.
