Note-taking for Interpreters: Witness Testimony and Cross-examination

Presentation to be followed by Q&A and networking

This workshop will cover the principles of note-taking for interpreters, which can be applied both to the conference and legal settings. Participants will also learn how to apply the techniques through self-study. Lastly, the presenter will cover the “commandments” of attorney-witness questioning. Thus participants will learn how to use their note-taking skills and understanding of questioning styles to best render witness testimony.
