New Chinese training opportunity for court interpreters

The Oregon Judicial Department has approved 6 language-specific and 2 ethics credits for the course.
“”Law and Society” aims to offer both readings of law that vary with the diversity of social relations and understandings of social events from the legal perspective. This module, through a combination of lectures with multimedia presentation, is designed to enable the students to gain a general knowledge of sociology, to analyse legal institutions and norms by comparative means, and to have a clearer idea of the legal tradition and its evolution in China.”

“The score of the end-of-term exam will account for 80% of the final mark, while assignments and tests 20%. Students who successfully complete the class will receive a Statement of Accomplishment signed by the instructor.”
