This course is designed to provide participants with a theoretical overview of a commonly interpreted civil legal setting – the deposition. The presenters will provide a description of the goals and purposes of the deposition. The roles of the deposition interpreter and the table interpreter will be examined. The presenters will lead a discussion and practical application of consecutive interpretation and notetaking. Participants will interpret a mock deposition which will be filmed for discussion purposes. Finally, participants will engage in peer review and discussion of their interpreting work.
