Court Reporters And Legal Videographers – Is There A Future? (My Opinion)


Because I have been reporting a case that is requiring daily delivery of transcripts, I have not been disciplined in my blogging. I apologize.

But I have received quite a few heartfelt emails in the last two weeks from people who have been reading this blog and are thinking about changing careers, are starting court reporting school, and are worried about their future. They all have a recurrent theme, “Is there a future in court reporting.” They ask for my honesty.

I will begin my thoughts by writing about a conversation I had Sunday with a young woman in Los Angeles. Her mom had just passed the CSR, had gone to an online school (Bryan), and was starting a second career. The young woman I was talking to was about 31, so you can do the math to figure out her mom’s approximate age.

The mom took four years, sitting in her garage, practicing and “attending” school. She went to a DRA convention and made a friend with a “seasoned” reporter, and they became friends. The mom had someone in the industry to help her stay focused and excited about court reporting as a future.
