The Lives in Translation program offers undergraduate internships in translation and interpretation serving the Legal Clinics at the Rutgers School of Law-Newark and other sites in the community. Interns participate in weekly training and receive academic credit for their work throughout the semester.

Additionally, LiT created a database of volunteers who are willing to serve as translators/interpreters in the community (so far, there are over 450 students who speak 48 different languages).

As part of the Lives in Translation initiative,  RU-N is starting a new minor in Translation/ Interpretation.
