Speaking Justice: Providing Victims and Litigants Language Access in the Court

Event Date
Tuesday, April 02, 2024, 03:00PM

Join the National Immigrant Women's Advocacy Project for a national webinar at which U.S. Department of Justice language access experts and the National Judicial Network will discuss federal law requirements for courts to provide language access in court proceedings, clerks offices and court-ordered services, ensuring that everyone, regardless of the language spoken, can fully participate in the legal process. The webinar will discuss the federal requirements to provide qualified interpreters for all types of civil, family, and criminal matters, including those involving limited English proficient victims. Presenters will also explore a real-life case in an interactive exercise, illustrating the critical importance of language access in courts and identifying how the failure of other agencies (e.g., hospitals, law enforcement, child protective services) to provide language access may impact the role of the courts and the outcomes for victims, children and all litigants. Presenters will offer practical solutions for lawyers and judges in communities facing language access challenges. This webinar will provide tips, tools, resources, and best practices that all judges, court staff, attorneys, and victim advocates can use to improve language access to courts serving their communities.
