Legal terminology for linguists: interpreting for the civil and criminal justice systems in the UK

This is a series of 6 webinars for interpreters who want to learn about or brush up their civil and criminal legal terminology 

Legal terminology is very specific – you either know it and understand it or you don’t.  Get it wrong and not only your client gets it wrong, your ability to get more work can be damaged as well.

These interactive sessions are a great opportunity for attendees to send in their particular queries. The webinars also take place at the end of the working day so great timing for working interpreters!

You can join us for just one of these workshops, or for all six – it’s up to you. Each webinar costs £20, but if you purchase three or more, graduated discounts apply. You will see the discount rates when you add this item to your cart.

These are the second three webinars. They all take place at 6:00 pm and will last for approximately one hour. To see a more detailed synopsis, click here.

Webinar 4 (September 10): Offences of dishonesty

Webinar 5 (September 17): Offences of violence

Webinar 6 (September 24): Sexual offences

Finally, Sue Leschen is offering one free one to one 30-minute help session to all attendees who have signed up for one or more of this series of webinars.
