Course Description

Boston University moved to remote teaching and learning format for all in-person classes to reduce the effects of COVID-19. Classes will meet during the advertised timeframe, and links to the classes will be provided to the students.

This course presents the full range of legal scenarios that commonly employ interpreters, including criminal court sessions, depositions, and financial and housing scenarios. It is imperative that interpreters working in this area understand the fundamentals of legal processes and master legal terminology, so there is an emphasis on acquiring this knowledge. Students also learn to follow the strict ethical standards and responsibilities by which legal interpreters are bound. This course covers these fundamentals through lectures and focused discussion.
