【CCL话题干货】legal话题口译背景知识

The glory of justice and the majesty of law are created not just by the Constitution - nor by the courts - nor by the officers of the law - nor by the lawyers - but by the men and women who constitute our society - who are the protectors of the law as they are themselves protected by the law.

-Robert Kennedy


因为不了解澳洲的法律体系,

同学们在备考CCL时面对晦涩的legal对话常常会非常痛苦,

偏偏口译员最重要的一块工作就是和法律有关。

今天小柠檬就为大家带来legal话题的背景知识,

供备考CCL的同学参考。


【一】口译与法律话题概况:

Introduction:

The legal and medico/legal domain is an area where interpreters provide a crucial service, because courts and tribunals require professional, independent and confidential interpreting services in dealing with non-English speaking applicants, witnesses, defendants and respondents. As well as interpreting at trials and hearings, interpreters also provide language services in other court related services and processes such as case conferences, counselling sessions and mediation conferences.
