A new three-year agreement was signed between the National Court Reporters Foundation and the Connecticut Bar Foundation (CBF). The goal is to protect and preserve the rich and extensive history of women in the legal profession, attorneys of color, and legal aid in Connecticut. These oral histories have been recorded by the Connecticut Bar Foundation’s James W. Cooper Fellow’s programs. Transcribed interviews are of value to the CBF as they aid in research analysis and offer accessibility to the public.
“We, at NCRF, are proud to make these new oral histories available to our members who want to give back by preserving aspects of legal progress in Connecticut,” said NCRF Board of Trustees Chair Early Langley, RMR, a freelance court reporter from Danville, Calif. We always want our members to earn PDC credit for their transcription contributions, and we appreciate every court reporter who takes the time to do these.”
Professional court reporters will earn 0.25 Professional Development Credit (PDC) for each transcription completed and can earn up to a maximum of 1.0 PDC during their three-year certification period. Additionally, students have an opportunity to earn a complimentary student membership in NCRA through the Student Initiatives Program. This CFB program does process all transcriptions digitally, but please keep backups of all of your work in your NCRA education files.
