Legal Careers

Court Reporter

Court reporters are now rarely used to record courtroom proceedings. They are certified by the Province of Saskatchewan, and hired on a case-by-case basis by private lawyers, crown prosecutors or government agencies to record and transcribe into written text every word that is spoken during a proceeding, such as a pre-trial examination of parties in a lawsuit.

To become a court reporter, a person must complete a court reporter's course and have a minimum recording speed on a stenotype machine. Saskatchewan does not have any court reporter courses; however, courses are offered in other provinces.
