The ABA Children’s Immigration Law Academy (CILA) invites you to a webinar presentation on tips for attorneys on working with interpreters. The presentation will cover the best practices for working with interpreters and child clients from the unique viewpoint of interpreters. The webinar will also help attorneys develop strategies for addressing interpretation challenges during asylum interviews and court proceedings:

I. Elissa Steglich, Clinical Professor at the University of Texas School of Law Immigration Clinic, will address:

  • Ethical issues in working with interpreters
