Interpreter Training

There is a valuable upcoming opportunity for people who speak a second language and would like to gain experience interpreting for the UW Legal Clinics!

This Friday, November 22nd, from 12-4pm the UW Clinic will be holding an interpreter training. The training will be conducted by a highly experienced court interpreter and lunch will be provided. After completing the training, interpreters will receive emails detailing opportunities to interpret at different UW clinics. They may decide to offer their services based on their own experience and schedule. There is no minimum commitment to interpret.

Interpreting for law clinics is a wonderful opportunity to learn about different areas of law and determine if you would like to participate in a clinic during your 2L or 3L year. It also a fantastic opportunity to help the local Spanish speaking community gain access to important legal services.

Please complete the attached document by Thursday and send it to Harold Daniels at hdaniels@uw.edu. The deadline to apply is Thursday, the 21st at 9am.

If you are interested in the training, but cannot make it this friday, email Alex Revelas at arevelas@uw.edu so that she can put you on the list for the January training.
