Spanish for Lawyers: Everything You Need to Know to Represent Latino and Latina Clients

Spanish for Lawyers: Everything You Need to Know to Represent Latino and Latina Clients

For the first time in our CLE curriculum, we are offering a short course dedicated to improve attorneys’ understanding and ability of the Spanish language in the context of legal proceedings. A portion of the class is dedicated to understanding legal terms in Spanish. Overall the class is important for all lawyers to provide better legal services, avoid misunderstandings, build client trust and deepen cultural competence in the community. We will further discuss pathways to use language skills in the legal practice such as when working with a certified court interpreter.
