This session will provide an overview of Title VI and current policy governing language access to the courts, as well as enforcement tools. 

Topics will include:

  • the right to a qualified interpreter at no cost;
  • right to translation of vital documents;
  • advance notice of the right to an interpreter and how to request one;
  • interpretation for conducting general business with the court and for services outside the courtroom;
  • the complaint process;
  • and best practices in representation of limited English proficient clients including the ethical duty to communicate with clients. 

We will also share some examples of non-compliance with language rights we have seen and how these issues can affect our clients.

Co-sponsored with the PBA Civil and Equal Rights Committee and DEI Team.

All attendees will receive the course book as a digital download.

Recorded in June 2022.
