The Mentoring ToolKit


Welcome to the Legal Interpreter Mentoring Toolkit! Here you can find a variety of resources that can be used by legal interpreting mentors and/or aspiring legal interpreter practitioners who practice sign language interpreting. 

The resources are organized into two parts:

1) Descriptions of learning and practice activities related to specific skills and knowledge legal interpreters need to master, and 

2) Resource material, such as transcripts, jury instructions, articles of interest, videos of legal texts in both ASL and English, among other things.

The description of learning and practice activities can be applied to various resource materials. You are encouraged to investigate and explore the described activities in concert with the materials/resources to expand the competencies of practitioners working in legal settings.
