Program Description

Legal Interpreting for Depositions, Due Process Hearings, and Unemployment Hearings

This class is open to Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, and Russian speaking students who would like to expand their interpreting skills in legal settings. The course will cover the most in-demand types of hearings such as Due Process Hearings, Unemployment Hearings, and Depositions. Students will learn legal terminology and procedural protocols needed to interpret for these various types of hearings. In addition, students will have the opportunity for intense practice through mock hearings. These mock hearings will give the students the experience and comfort-level needed to apply for work in the field. Trained legal interpreters are in demand throughout Massachusetts and nationwide in law offices, schools, state agencies and contracting agencies. 

Prerequisite

Students must provide a certificate of completion for a minimum of 40 hours of interpreter training or a letter from your employer confirming a minimum of two (2) years of experience working as an interpreter in any setting.

Please register as early as possible, as a brief telephone interview will be required before acceptance into the course.
