About Depositions

A deposition is the oral questioning and testimony of a witness outside of court, in which litigants obtain information for the pending trial and future litigation proceedings. Legal depositions (or Examinations Before Trial (EBTs)) are usually held before a trial begins, and are recorded testimonies given by a witness (or deponent) answering questions about the future trial. Depositions are necessary to many cases, especially in the USA, and are utilised in multiple branches of law: from civil to criminal to intellectual property law. Recently, the number of non-English speaking witnesses has increased rapidly, which means interpreters are in much demand for this vital part of the legal process. Given the vital importance of depositions, interpreters used in depositions must be experienced, professional and adhere to judicial protocol; interpreters’ actions can influence the outcome of the proceedings.
