Language Access Resources

At a Glance

According to 2011 U.S. Census Bureau data, "[o]f 291.5 million people aged 5 and over, 60.6 million people (21 percent of this population) spoke a language other than English at home." 

With respect to people's interactions with government organizations, efforts have increased to ensure that those who do not speak English or have Limited English Proficiency (LEP) can have meaningful access to our core social institutions - including the courts.  Some ATJ Commissions have provided leadership in promoting language access in the justice system.
