1st Presence-Based Symposium on Comparative Law,
Translation and Interpreting


DIRECTI is a presence-based symposium on comparative law, translation and interpreting.

The idea came about through having observed the world of legal translation through the eyes of legal specialists.   The aim of the event is to bring together translators, interpreters and professionals in the area of law, in order to show that the abilities which each profession has, can contribute to each other.  The teaching of legal English and the practice of legal translation, cuts through the teaching of comparative law, being a source of concepts which will be applied to terminology.

Theme: Let´s learn about the law
