The court reporting profession is growing fast in the technology space. While we learn new techniques that make our lives easier in the technology world, we must make sure the rules of law are followed. Each state has unique codes and regulations to adhere to. A couple quick tips to keep current:
- Know your local state laws for court reporters.
- Know the federal laws for court reporters.
- Understand and abide by your state’s licensing and/or certification requirements.
- Follow your local association’s rules and regulations.
It all sounds simple enough, but it takes a bit of research to ensure compliance in all areas. Some states have unique requirements for such things as production of transcripts. Some states have requirements for the different methods by which a proceeding can be reported.
