Symposium: Retrospect on the past 3 years of the Lay-judge System and Court cases requiring an Interpreter

2012-12-8 (Sat) 1:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.

On Saturday, December 8, the Global Collaboration Center will hold a symposium regarding the lay-judge system and court cases requiring an interpreter.

Three years have passed since the lay-judge system was introduced in May 2009; therefore, this symposium will be a forum for court interpreters to gather and share information for improving the lay-judge system.

Common citizens are also welcome. This symposium hopes to improve general understanding regarding the role of court interpreters.


Part 1: Court cases requiring an interpreter and court interpreters in the lay-judge system

Part 2: Summary of interview surveys for court interpreters who served in lay-judge cases

Part 3: Problems presented by court interpreters

Part 4: Comments from legal professionals, questions and answers, and summary
