Intro to Legal Interpreting: The Arraignment Process

**Presented in English**

December 2 from 12-4pm CT via Zoom

0.4 PS CEUs for $45

The arraignment is the most common legal proceeding you will encounter as a legal interpreter. Arraignment quite often means interpreting the Guilty Plea Litany - a highly complex linguistic hurtle for Deaf litigants. Interpreters planning to do legal work must have a strong understanding of the Guilty Plea Litany and have many strategies to customize their interpretation to best suit each client.

In this workshop we will learn procedural steps of an arraignment with emphasis on the Guilty Plea Litany. Participants will begin text analysis of the Guilty Plea Litany and work in groups to practice interpreting each element.
