Summary

Summary

To strengthen the California judiciary’s capacity to meet the needs of millions of people with limited-English language skills, the Judicial Council charged the Language Access Plan Implementation Task Force with implementing the Strategic Plan for Language Access in the California Courts. This report offers a brief description of progress on implementation of the plan. The task force also submits an informational report with recommendations for courts on “wayfinding” and signage strategies to assist limited-English-proficient (LEP) court users. The report will be shared with the 58 superior courts and posted to the Language Access Toolkit.
