Interpreting in legal settings requires the acquisition of highly specialised knowledge relating to the law, legal language and discourses, legal interpreting theory and practical interpreting skills. This course will introduce students to the contextual knowledge needed to operate in diverse legal settings such as the courtroom, tribunals and the police and will develop the interpreting and linguistic skills necessary to work as professional legal interpreters. The course will combine theory and practice and will be informed by the results of research into legal interpreting. The course will consist of a one-hour lecture in English and a two-hour language specific practical tutorial per week.
