Commencing in 2008, in collaboration with law firm administrators, law professors, litigators, attorney associations, and private organizations, I began offering apprenticeships to court reporting students and licensed reporters at mock depositions and trials in the greater San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley. Unlike shadowing a working court reporter, my apprentices are reporters of record and are tasked with speaking up / interrupting as often as necessary to capture the best record they can; marking exhibits; and producing rough drafts or final transcripts. As a result, students dubbed her Mock Woman.
