Summary:This session will provide information and terminology at an INTERMEDIATE level used in the different legal systems and courts of law. It is suitable for translators and interpreters who plan to work or are already working in the field and who want to expand their vocabulary and understanding of concepts at the level of a paralegal. Although based mostly on terms widely used in the USA, terms used in other countries are also introduced. (The session is language-neutral delivered in English but appropriate for any language pair.)
Description
This 90 minute session covers hundreds of terms at an intermediate --paralegal level-- as used in legal encounters, the courts, and other legal settings. It describes terms used in USA and the UK as well as other countries and presents a systematic approach to word building and term comprehension.

This is a fast-pace, intense, session with an upbeat and lively mood, that requires full engagement on the part of the participant in terms of ACTIVE listening, individual thinking and processing of information, as well as hands-on note-taking and interactive activities. HANDS-ON exercises will also be suggested to be completed AFTER the session.

This is one more session that forms part of the bundles focusing on the progressive acquisition of skills in terminology used in legal settings, healthcare and medicine, and finance and business, and tips on how to build better glossaries.
