Stetson hosts “Essentials of Trial Interpreting: A Mock Trial Experience”
SC:L certified sign language interpreters Ben Hall and Linda Ross presented at the two-day session, covering the essential elements of trial interpreting for the deaf and featuring a mock trial experience conducted by Stetson Law.
Sign language interpreters for the deaf were invited to interpret a mock courtroom trial in Stetson’s Eleazer Courtroom, a teaching courtroom on Stetson’s Gulfport campus designed as a model for accessibility.
“The Workshop was designed to be a collaborative learning experience for both sign language interpreters and Stetson law students,” explained Professor Jason Palmer, one of the organizers of the workshop. “Providing this mock trial training in an actual courtroom to sign language interpreters, the only one of its kind, reinforces Stetson’s commitment to community outreach, as well as providing access to justice through unique educational opportunities.”
Hallenross and Associates, LLC, provided 1.6 CEU credits for interpreters.
