This post updates and replaces my 2012 compendium. As I haven’t found this kind of guide elsewhere, my aim is to give you a flavour of the legal translation, legal linguistics and legal interpreting courses available at universities worldwide.
Please contact me via the sidebar if you know of others that I have not included here.
A summer course “International Legal Practice” is to be held from Monday 2nd to Saturday 7th September 2013, at Worcester College, University of Oxford, UK, for lawyers, judges and business professionals. This is the third year that the course has been run, and in 2011 and 2012, it attracted over 60 lawyers, judges and accountants from across Europe, Turkey and Ukraine.
In this post, I hope to give you some examples of the legal translation and interpreting degrees available. Please do write in if you know of others that I haven’t included here.
Most are on-site courses, but a number involve distance learning to varying extents.
The information below has been taken from the relevant university websites and direct correspondence. If any details are incorrect, I would be happy to change them upon request from the institution concerned.
I have listed the courses in alphabetical order of their location.
