Course Description for Interpreting in Legal Settings
Interpreting in Legal Settings
Description: In this course, students will develop a knowledge base regarding the American legal system, sources of legal rights, and key pieces of legislation. They will research best practices and the wide range of legal settings, and consider how to provide meaning-based interpretation of legal texts in five of these settings. Students will then apply this foundation to the production of equivalent linguistic and cultural translations and interpretations in specific legal texts/settings.
