EULITA conference at the Court of Justice

The conference “The Impact of Interpreters on the Judiciary at National and International Level” organized by EULITA at the Court of Justice of the EU in Luxembourg on 28 and 29 March was a great success and deserved a follow-up even on the Court’s Intranet, as you can see here below.

160 registered participants attended the two round tables whose panels’ distinguished members discussed – and answered questions posed by the public about – legal interpreters’ quality and recognition, status and remuneration, working conditions and dignity, etc.

This was the first occasion – of a long series, we hope – where national and international magistrates met, exchanged opinions and analyzed the situation of legal interpreters in Europe after the transposition of Directive 2010/64/EU: a useful way to raise awareness among legal operators and national and European legislators.
