Abstract:

"From the Classroom to the Courtroom: A guide to interpreting in the U.S. 
justice system" offers a wealth of information that will assist aspiring court 
interpreters in providing linguistic minorities with access to fair and 
expeditious judicial proceedings. The guide will familiarize prospective court 
interpreters and students interested in court interpreting with the nature, 
purpose and language of pretrial, trial and post-trial proceedings. Documents, 
dialogues and monologues illustrate judicial procedures; the description of 
court hearings with transcripts creates a realistic model of the stages 
involved in live court proceedings.

The innovative organization of this guide mirrors the progression of criminal 
cases through the courts and provides readers with an accessible, easy-to-
follow format. It explains and illustrates court procedure as well as provides 
interpreting exercises based on authentic materials from each successive 
stage. This novel organization of materials around the stages of the judicial 
process also facilitates quick reference without the need to review the entire 
volume — an additional advantage that makes this guide the ideal 
interpreters' reference manual. 

Supplementary instructional aids include recordings in English and Spanish 
and a glossary of selected legal terms in context.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as 
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match 
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your 
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the 
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a
simple administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to
LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if
your company operates such a program.
