Court Reporter Careers

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, job prospects are expected to
be excellent as job openings continue to outnumber job seekers and
demand for real-time and broadcast captioning and translating will spur
employment growth in the court reporting field

Job opportunities should be best for those with
certification.

Court reporters typically create verbatim transcripts of speeches,
conversations, legal proceedings, meetings, and other events when written
accounts of spoken words are necessary for correspondence, records, or
legal proof. Court reporters play a critical role not only in judicial
proceedings, but also at every meeting where the spoken word must be
preserved as a written transcript. They are responsible for ensuring a
complete, accurate, and secure legal record. In addition to preparing and
protecting the legal record, many court reporters assist judges and trial
attorneys in a variety of ways, such as organizing and searching for
information in the official record or making suggestions to judges and
attorneys regarding courtroom administration and procedure. Increasingly,
court reporters are providing closed-captioning and real-time translating
services to the deaf and hard-of-hearing community.
