The Barbra Schlifer Clinic will offer online courses for language interpreters and legal service providers, developed with a previous grant, for a further year. The online course for language interpreters aims to increase interpreters’ knowledge of legal terminology and legal process, and to familiarize them with legal documents and forms. It provides information on the Canadian legal system and on criminal, family and immigration law. The online course for legal service providers, which has been accredited by the Law Society, is intended to equip lawyers and paralegals in Ontario with best practices for working with spoken language interpreters, in-person and remotely.
