This seminar will familiarize participants with the various common roles of ASL Interpreters in facilitating communication between lawyers and their clients in depositions and court proceedings. Tips will be provided on overcoming challenges in use of “legaleze”, and in providing practical guidance to attorneys and court staff. Discussion will also cover special confidentiality issues involved in lawyer-client communications, including unique privilege issues that dictate who may participate in lawyer-client communications and how clients must be advised to maintain confidentiality.
