'This book is a must-have resource for any practising legal interpreter or student of interpreting in Australia. It covers a wide range of information relevant to the topic, including the Australian legal system and the criminal process, legal language and terminology, dynamics of the courtroom, code of ethics, the role of interpreters in the various legal settings (courts and tribunals, police, interpreters as expert opinion witnesses, transcription/translation of evidentiary audio recordings, etc), together with a list of important legal terms (with very useful and informative definitions) and practical dialogues that would be highly beneficial to use individually, in pairs or in a classroom. It is especially useful for people who are preparing for NAATI's Certified Interpreter test or Certified Specialist Legal Interpreter test, as it contains references to and explanations of a large number of legal concepts and procedures, as well as roles and practices of law enforcement agencies in Australia."--Back cover.
