The arraignment is the most common legal proceeding you will encounter as a legal interpreter.
Arraignment quite often means interpreting the Guilty Plea Litany – a highly complex linguistic hurtle for Deaf litigants. Interpreters planning to do legal work must have a strong understanding of the Guilty Plea Litany and have many strategies to customize their interpretation to best suit each client.
In this course you will learn procedural steps of an arraignment with emphasis on the Guilty Plea Litany. Participants will begin text analysis of the Guilty Plea Litany and practice interpreting each element.
