Lamar State College Orange Tuition Capped by TSUS Board of Regents

Lamar State College Orange has partnered with Mark Kislingbury, a world-renowned professional court reporter and captioner to offer an 18-month court reporting program. The Mark Kislingbury Academy was developed to, unlike most court reporting schools, teach writing that uses as few strokes as possible versus writing out every word phonetically. This program will fully prepare students to pass the state and national tests that may be required in certain venues, such as Certified Shorthand Reporter (CSR) and Registered Professional Reporter (RPR).

This program will teach students how to become a professional court reporter. The principal occupational skills will be taught using machine shorthand to write literary dictation at speeds up to 180 words per minute, jury charge dictation at speeds up to 200 words per minute, and question-and-answer testimony in legal settings at speeds up to 225 words per minute, all at a minimum of 95% accuracy.

Students will learn how to transcribe dictation using CAT software (computer-assisted translation), create and format official court transcripts, mark, and index exhibits, create mini-transcripts and ASCII disks, connect to other computers for providing real-time and other technologies related to court reporting. They will receive advanced schooling in English vocabulary and usage, punctuation, proofreading and editing skills, current events, as well as law, legal and medical terminology. Students will receive instruction on court reporting procedures and will complete a practical internship. Graduates of the program will be thoroughly prepared to immediately obtain employment in both official and freelance court reporting positions.
