Course Effective Date: February 12, 2020

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Executive Order 13166 provides the right for language access and thereby affording LEP court users fair access to justice.

During this training, Ms. Escobar provides a basic overview of the role of a certified court interpreter. She will discuss the different types of interpretation, ethical responsibilities, the brain science and multilingual language control in simultaneous interpretation, and other tools of the trade.
