Working with Interpreters and Clients: Translating Between Culture and the Courtroom

April 12, 2019 | 5.25 Law and Legal and .75 Ethics CLE Credits

New Date! The skill to fully utilize and work with interpreters is critical to helping your non-English speaking clients, especially in the courtroom. Chaired by Yelena Stock, from the Seattle City Attorney's Office, her faculty for this program include judicial officers Mark Chow, Mafé Rajul, and Linda Coburn, plus attorneys and interpreters who will speak from both a personal cultural perspective and a professional perspective as members of the legal community. The participation of interpreters has become an essential part of almost all areas of legal practice, in order to provide context and cultural translation for clients unfamiliar with the American legal system. Join us to build your toolbox for ensuring the most positive possible outcome for your client.
