Ensuring Language Access Outside the Courtroom: Training for Judicial Employees

The Language Access Basic Training (LABT) is a project developed by the New Mexico Center for Language Access along with the National Center for State Courts, the Council of Language Access Coordinators (CLAC) and the Language Access Advisory Committee (LAAC). It is funded by the State Justice Institute (SJI). SJI funded this project to provide language access training and qualification for state courts in order to improve the quality of language access services outside the courtroom for Limited English Proficient (LEP) individuals.

About the Training

The LABT is a downloadable interactive training module for bilingual court employees who interact with people outside of the courtroom. The purpose of the training is to ensure that all court employees have a basic understanding of their ethical and legal obligations, as well as current best practices in serving limited English proficient and non-English speaking individuals.
