Court Reporters

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment of court reporters should grow as fast as the average for all occupations through 2022. The increasing number of criminal court cases and civil lawsuits, coupled with the continuing need for court and pretrial depositions and growth of real-time, broadcast captioning will drive the need for court reporters in both state and federal court systems. Job opportunities should be greatest in and around large metropolitan areas, but qualified court reporters should be able to find work in most parts of the country. Court reporters will also find good work opportunities using their skills to produce captioning for television programs, which is a federal requirement for all television programming, and creating real-time translations for the deaf and hard-of-hearing in legal and academic settings.
