Court Reporting Colleges

Court reporters create word-for-word transcriptions at trials, depositions, and other legal proceedings. Some court reporters provide captioning for television and real-time translation for deaf or hard-of-hearing people at public events, at business meetings, or in classrooms.

Court reporters may be employed by a court or legal office or may work freelance for a variety of legal clients. Any formal legal proceeding, from a private meeting in a judge's chambers to a large-scale trial in a courtroom, requires the services of a court reporter. Breaking it down to the bare basics, a court reporter's job consists of documenting official legal proceedings by creating verbatim transcripts of all statements - that includes every word said, as well as notes on physical and emotional gestures. Getting every word right is essential.

Many court reporters receive formal training at community colleges or technical institutes. There are different programs that lead to either a certificate or an associate’s degree in court reporting. Either a certificate or an associate’s degree will qualify applicants for many entry-level positions. Certification programs prepare students to pass the licensing exams successfully and typing speed tests required by most states and employers.
