Workshop Description

Have you ever been in court or with an attorney where an ethical situation arose without a simple black and white answer and wondered what you should do? This workshop will familiarize you with the Code of Ethics for court interpreters, introduce mechanisms for addressing ethical dilemmas and put those tools into practice through peer discussions and exercises led by Federally Certified court interpreter Marcela Renna and State Certified court interpreter Sara Gardner. This workshop is worth 6 hours of continuing education units as per OSCA requirements.

This 6-hour Ethics for Court Interpreters workshop includes:

  • Review of the Code of Ethics for court interpreters
  • Interactive ethical dilemmas and peer discussions
  • What’s the right course of action to take when the ethical dilemma is not a simple black and white situation?
  • End-of-day quiz
