Working with the OPDS

Has an attorney approached you requesting your language services on a court-appointed case? Are you interested in providing your services but uncertain of the arrangement for payment? The Office of Public Defense Services funds out-of-court language services on court-appointed cases. At this month's Court Interpreter Cafe, besides the usual socializing, we will be discussing the topic of payment for our language services through OPDS. 


Why: To socialize and check-in with our colleagues; to learn from each other and share our common experiences interpreting for the Oregon Courts during pandemic times; and—very importantly—to cut loose and socialize a little! These get-togethers will not be recorded, and are meant to foment solidarity amongst our colleagues when dealing with the various in-person, remote, and hybrid modalities of court interpreting. We can also chat about any issues that impact us, from rates of pay to representation in all aspects of court life. This is an ongoing event with varying hosts, an array of "set" and "loose" agendas, and guest speakers. Join us!

Hosts: Oregon Certified Court Interpreters Jessica Dover, Adrian Arias and John Wan

Best wishes,
Adrian, John, and Jessica
