ASLIS is an Approved RID CMP Sponsor for Continuing Education Activities. This Professional Studies program is offered for a total of 0.2 CEUs at Some Content Knowledge Level.
In the process of interpreting (on
In the process of interpreting (on the “hot seat”), no matter the years of experience, we can still mentally hold ourselves back from believing in our own strengths. And Legal work is no place for lack of confidence. There’s a cure. You can build your confidence through legal education – and the training to know when the right time to “speak-up” is. Legal is very much about timing.
In this workshop, we will challenge ourselves in how we look at:
(1) Inquiry * (looking outward). Before stepping into court, are we confident in our own Demand-Control issues and ready to listen? We will discuss the roles in the courtroom, including “officer of the court”?
(2) Reflection, * (looking inward) How do we “check in” with each other? Teams have to have each other’s back… even when they don’t like each other! They still have to professionally work together. How do we judge when to stop the proceedings and – at that exact point – who do you address first?
(3) Articulation,* what was not said,* Intuition holds a very important role with our interpreting, likewise inference skills are critical to our work. Where / Who is your point of focus?? Who was your mentor? Where are your training certificates? Do you have a work portfolio?
In this workshop the participants will be able to:
(1) Report, (External – Comprehension skills)
The participants will define four types of trials and three different focuses (defendant / juror / Deaf attorney).
(2) Reflection, (Internal – Tools)
The participants will practice sharing their understanding of at least three types of legal resources. The participants will discuss their process using the Demand/Control.
(3) Motivated, (to continue training)
Be shown the length and detail of “LEGAL” assignments– and the importance of having the skills to walk into a courtroom (never for the first time alone). The participants will receive information on legal trainers and mentors.
