The Department of World Languages hosted the Idaho Supreme Court’s annual Ethics and Written Exam Preparation Workshop on March 24. Fatima Cornwall, Spanish language coordinator, and state and federal certified court interpreter, facilitated the workshop.

Twelve prospective court interpreters from across Idaho participated. The majority are seeking certification in Spanish. Others will test for Arabic, Chinese and French.

The guest speaker, Idaho Supreme Court Justice Robyn Brody, addressed the attendees. Brody explained the court interpreters’ role in guaranteeing access to justice and equal protection for those with limited English proficiency. She ended her welcoming remarks by sharing her love for languages and cultures, specially the Russian language. Her B.A. was in Russian, and later she studied abroad and worked in Russia.
