Language of Justice Institute Launches in Mid-Atlantic Region

A new Language of Justice Institute is now available.  The Institute is a joint project of Widener University’s Delaware Law School, the First Judicial District of Pennsylvania (FJD-Philadelphia County Courts), and the Administrative Office of the Pennsylvania Courts (AOPC), and was funded in part by SJI.

The purpose of the Institute is to provide a structured academic approach to preparing candidates for the oral exams, and help improve passing rates.  It is also an excellent resource for continuing education opportunities for already-credentialed interpreters.  Located in Wilmington, Delaware, this program will have regional appeal and will attract prospective candidates from throughout Mid-Atlantic region, including Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania.

Prospective candidates, interpreters, and others who might be interested can find more information on the resource page.  A small number of scholarships are available. The application deadline is December 15, 2017.
