Legal Interpreters

Legal interpreters have an important job. They make it possible for limited English Speakers to have equal access to the legal system as mandated by law.

The Legal Interpreting Committee is comprised of interpreter members who organize events that provide learning and networking opportunities for individuals working as interpreters within the court system and other legal settings. Explore the types of trainings we do by checking out the programs below.
