Title: From the Classroom to the Courtroom
Subtitle: A guide to interpreting in the U.S. justice system
Written By: Elena M. de Jongh
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/ata.xvii
Series Title: American Translators Association Scholarly Monograph Series XVII
Description:

"From the Classroom to the Courtroom: A guide to interpreting in the U.S.
justice system" offers a wealth of information that will assist aspiring court
interpreters in providing linguistic minorities with access to fair and
expeditious judicial proceedings. The guide will familiarize prospective court
interpreters and students interested in court interpreting with the nature,
purpose and language of pretrial, trial and post-trial proceedings. Documents,
dialogues and monologues illustrate judicial procedures; the description of
court hearings with transcripts creates a realistic model of the stages
involved in live court proceedings.

The innovative organization of this guide mirrors the progression of criminal
cases through the courts and provides readers with an accessible, easy-to-
follow format. It explains and illustrates court procedure as well as provides
interpreting exercises based on authentic materials from each successive
stage. This novel organization of materials around the stages of the judicial
process also facilitates quick reference without the need to review the entire
volume — an additional advantage that makes this guide the ideal
interpreters’ reference manual.

Supplementary instructional aids include recordings in English and Spanish
and a glossary of selected legal terms in context.
