One area of the court reporting profession that can be overlooked is the legislative court reporters that cover everything from congressional hearings to state and local government proceedings.
Just as attorneys and court reporting firms strive to find the best court reporter for a unique setting, so do government entities. Public hearings, local and state government proceedings, board of review hearings, mediations, etc., all require highly skilled stenographers.
What are some of the special skills required to be a court reporter for hearings and arbitrations? Here are just a few:
- Outstanding court reporting skills.
- Excellent listening skills.
- The ability to control a setting with multiple speakers.
- Organizational skills to identify multiple speakers.
- The ability to work in an intense environment.
