ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/11/14 -- Brown College of Court Reporting, a leader in the field of court reporting with a national reputation for excellence, is pleased to announce that it will host an open house, guest speakers, webinars, games, and giveaways to commemorate National Court Reporting and Captioning Week, which is being held from Sunday, February 16 through Saturday, February 22.

An open house will be held on Saturday, February 22, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. that will inform prospective students about the benefits of receiving an education in court reporting and captioning.

However, court reporting students must have the drive and self-motivation to develop this essential skill for the legal profession," said Marita Carey, director of Brown College of Court Reporting. "Our students have several career options to choose from including court reporting, live-event captioning for the deaf and hard-of-hearing community, and captioning for broadcast and specialized videography."

The week's schedule will be announced soon on Brown College of Court Reporting's Web site, www.bccr.edu, and Facebook page, www.facebook.com/pages/Brown-College-of-Court-Reporting/131169993583754. Confirmed speakers for the week include:
