NSW Branch Presents:

Family Law for Translators
and Interpreters

Live Webinar via Zoom Online

Saturday 21 May 2022

10.00am - 12.00pm  AEST


Learn the basics about Australian Family Law to assist you in your interpreting and translation assignments. 

Dear Colleague,

Context is key in translating and interpreting. The aim of this webinar is to present Australian Family Law in an interactive and sequential way: starting with marriage, separation, divorce and also matters where the State interferes with family life to safeguard children (known as Care and Protection) and matters when parents remove a child from the child’s country of habitual residence without the consent of the other parent (known as child abduction).  

Who is this webinar for?

It is aimed at practitioners that are new to T/I or who are not familiar with Australian Family Law. The webinar has been designed with T/I practitioners in mind, rather than lawyers; therefore, concepts are explained and examples used. Participants will gain an understanding on the Australian institutions involved in Family Law, how the federal and state/territory institutions interact, how to search legal authorities relevant to the Australian context, etc.  

In order to make the webinar interactive, if participants have questions or experiences that they wish the presenter to discuss at the webinar (time permitting), they can contact the presenter on
