A CCIO Webinar:
Arraignments in Latin America:
Enhancing the Spanish Court Interpreter’s
Legal Terminology Repertoire
Presented By: Sandro Tomasi
Saturday, January 30, 2021
11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. EST
With the criminal procedure reforms in Latin America throughout the last couple of decades, most Spanish-speaking countries have switched from a Roman-law inquisitorial system (sistema inquisitivo) to a common-law-based adversarial system (sistema acusatorio). This seminar will explore the commonalities between the two systems from a legal-terminology perspective to give court interpreters more terms for their repertoire.
