Russell, Debra. 2002. Interpreting in legal contexts: consecutive and simultaneous interpretation. Burtonsville: Linstok Press. 256 pp.
This book emphasizes that interpreters must know how and when to use simultaneous and consecutive interpreting in the courtroom in order to fully include deaf people in the judicial process. Interviews with lawyers, judges, expert witnesses and deaf people themselves give an insight into the needs and misconceptions of all parties involved in the legal process. It points out how interpreter education programs and professional associations must evaluate their programs to insure that interpreters are receiving the appropriate training in the use of consecutive and simultaneous interpreting necessary for legal environments.
