Just a reminder of my previous post – eCPD Webinars are presenting a series of five 1-hour webinars in June and July, on legal terminology in England and Wales. Of course, being webinars, they can be accessed from anywhere in the world, and if you’re not free at the time of the webinar, you can watch the recording later on.
The speaker is David Hutchins of Lexacom, who teaches law and terminology at face-to-face workshops and seminars, both to translators, and to lawyers from civil code systems who are less familiar with common law.
Webinar 1, 26 June: Contracts and Contract Formation for Legal Translators
Webinars 2 & 3, 28 June: The English Legal System for Legal Interpreters and Translators
Webinars 4 & 5, 3 July: Criminal Law and Procedure for Legal Interpreters and Translators
David’s face-to-face courses are highly motivating and fast-paced, and have been very favorably reported on two occasions by the Institute of Translation & Interpreting (ITI) – to see the articles click here, as well as being recommended for lawyers by the German DeutscheAnwaltAkademie and the Swedish Armed Forces.
David Hutchins has been a solicitor since 1967. He was until 1998 the Senior Partner of Hutchins & Co, Solicitors, London, a firm he founded in 1971. He has been responsible for, inter alia, the selection and supervision of trainee solicitors. He is currently a Practising Consultant with the firm.
His legal experience includes conveyancing, wills, probate, landlord and tenant, commercial contracts, employment law, criminal law, family law, professional negligence, personal injury claims and general civil litigation. He has been a frequent Guest Speaker on ‘English for Lawyers’ courses and is also an experienced small-group presenter. He speaks and reads French and has a working knowledge of German, Italian, and Latin. He was formerly a QLTT (Qualified Lawyers’ Transfer Test) Oral Test Assessor for Altior Consulting & Training Ltd on behalf of the SRA (Solicitors Regulation Authority).

In addition to this series of webinars, I can thoroughly recommend eCPD’s programme – they offer subjects that are really relevant, reasonably priced, and easy to access (either on the day or by purchasing to watch at a later date). Of course, being webinars, they can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
