Criminal Law, Civil Law, and Legal Language & Terminology.
This course was previously delivered by the Society of Translators and Interpreters of BC (STIBC) as preparation for their Court Interpreting Certificate examination and for twenty years before that by Vancouver Community College as (VCC) part of their Court Interpreting Certificate Program — same course same text book. The textbook was originally written by a lawyer and then re-written by an experienced court interpreter/law student (who is now Head of School at VanSIT).
If you took this course at STIBC we give full course credit upon your passing a one hour written exam at VanSIT. Neither STIBC nor VCC had an exam for this course specific to this course. The exam fee was formerly included in the STIBC course fee for VanSIT students and rebated to us on your behalf. However, STIBC had a change of heart and declined to make the rebate for many students. The exam fee is $50 ,which included in the course fee for VanSIT students.
