PD opportunity: 7th Annual Legal Interpreting Symposium 2017

Our colleagues at UNSW have now opened registrations for the 7th Annual Legal Symposium. The aim of this year's symposium is to examine the status of interpreting in police settings, discuss the interaction between police and interpreters, share concerns and discuss ways of improving interpreted communication.

There will be a panel discussion that will allow police and interpreters to establish a direct dialogue with each other, explain their professional needs and expectations, and relate the highs and lows of working together.

The program for the day also features an audience Q&A session along with speeches from Professor Sandra Hale, Associate Professor Ludmila Stern and Associate Professor Uldis Ozolins.

By improving the interpretation users’ and interpreters’ understanding of each other’s professional role and needs, the forum is key to leading to the development of a ‘best practice’ approach to working together in police settings.
