Upcoming CPD opportunities: Spring 2014

seedlings growing

Here are some low-cost opportunities to learn more about your subject matter and hone your skills this spring:

And three classes offered by the law faculty of the Sorbonne (in French), from the blog Words to Deeds.

If you don’t see something here that piques your interest, I encourage you to at least check out the different course providers. Local translator and client associations, MOOC providers like Coursera and FutureLearn, and local colleges or universities offer hundreds of different ways to improve your understanding of your specialty subject matter, source language, target language, business practices… I could go on forever.

Happy studying!

  1. I attended the previous session of “Introduction to International Criminal Law” on Coursera, and it was really good. The schedule is quite tight and the exam is quite challenging.
    I am currently attending “Comprendre l’exercice de la Justice: panorama des institutions juridictionnelles” on France Université Numérique (among the 3 Sorbonne courses you linked to): very useful as well.

    • Thanks for sharing your experience, Nelia! I just signed up for the Sorbonne class you’re in, and even though I’m starting out “behind,” I’m excited to listen to the lectures. Glad to hear it’s worth it!
