CTA Webinar Series Presents:
When the Law Hits Home: Legal Issues Affecting Translators and Interpreters
Please join us for a webinar on Tuesday, October 18, with lawyer-linguist Suzanne Deliscar to learn about potential legal issues.
Translators and interpreters work diligently to protect their clients’ personal and commercial interests, but are often unaware of the laws that apply to them both as private citizens and professionals. Success in business includes being cognizant of any current or possible legal issue that could affect the smooth operation of our commercial activities, or our personal lives, and addressing them. This webinar presentation is taught by Suzanne E. Deliscar, Lawyer-Linguist, who has been licensed to practice law in Ontario, Canada since 2004 and has continuously provided legal advice to hundreds of clients, including fellow translators and interpreters, since then.
The presentation will include the following topics:
• Liability Insurance and the Language Services Professional
• Which Business Structure Is Best for You?
• Methods for Settling Commercial Disputes
• Am I Just Helping My Clients, or Engaging in the Practice of Law? Here’s How to Know
• Estate Planning in a Nutshell for Linguists
• What to Do When Family Law Issues Arise
• How to Find Legal Help and Resources
• “Ask the Lawyer” – Question and Answer Period
At the end of this webinar, translators and interpreters should have greater awareness of legal issues that they may be obliged to address, and how to prevent potential problems by using available free and paid resources and services.
