30 Jan Language Access in the California Courts
The result of an 18-month effort, the Judicial Council of California recently voted to approve an historic language services plan for the 58 superior courts in the state. The plan calls for a consistent statewide approach that will include the immediate formation of an implementation task force to recommend and develop ways to carry out the plan. Once again, California is a state to watch for judiciary interpreters. You can find the full press release here.
