Going Through the Motions

Voice and Body Care
by Jessica Claire (2.0 hours, all languages)
As professional voice users, court interpreters have an obligation to develop and maintain a clear, supported, and healthy voice. Join voice and speech specialist Jessica Claire in a participatory session that will explore vocal production and sound modification. Adapting exercises from actor training, participants will explore basic voice and speech techniques to help prevent vocal fatigue, address performance anxiety, and shift common problematic speech sounds in American English. This seminar will expand upon topics covered at the 2010 conference in Santa Monica.
History of Maritime Law
by Ken Freedman (2.0 hours, all languages)
This popular legal historian will cover concepts and terminology in the first area of international law—maritime conventions were essential to the development of international trade. The ancient Code of Hammurabi initiated the concept of warranty, and as international maritime trade developed into a critical component of all coastal national economies, it spurred developments in the laws of finance and insurance. Even today, maritime vocabulary maintains its ancient heritage and the international conventions of law can be easily traced to their ancient sources. Understanding the historical evolution of maritime law and terminology will serve the interpreter as a tool for understanding the evolution of legal terminology in general.
