This two-part, 15-hour introductory workshop (Part One: 3 hours and Part Two: 12 hours) is for those who seek to advance their understanding and application of best practices while working as a member of a Deaf-hearing team. Participants will learn about legal interpreting, including the role and responsibilities of the legal interpreter in the courtroom setting, while working as a member of a Deaf-hearing interpreting team. Theory and best practices of the proceedings interpreter—and how that role is reflected in the application of protocol consistent with court procedure as a full Deaf-hearing interpreting team—will be discussed. Protocol relating to disclosures to the court, correcting the record, negotiating for optimal working conditions, and intra-team monitoring will also be addressed. Participants will engage in small and large group activities, at which time different protocol strategies will be discussed and applied.
