Improving Access to Justice for Survivors by Ensuring Meaningful Language Access in the Courts in the Time of COVID-19 and Beyond (2)
May 18 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

May 18, 2020 – 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. CST

State courts have an obligation to provide equal access to justice for all people. This requires recognizing the added barriers faced by individuals in different communities and developing policies and programs to help close that gap. The National Center for Access to Justice has ranked the New Mexico Judiciary among the top states in the nation for its language access initiatives. This webinar will describe their multi-faceted approach for assisting survivors of Intimate Partner Violence who have limited English proficiency, are deaf or hard of hearing, have communication disabilities, or have low literacy levels. They will focus on how they are adapting to address these critical needs during the public health emergency and beyond.

This interactive webinar will highlight some of the following promising practices:

• In-court and out-of-court remote interpreting;
• A multilingual interactive digital avatar and courthouse kiosks which integrate artificial intelligence, voice command, speech recognition and other technologies, to significantly improve access to court services for underserved communities in New Mexico;
• Development of policies and procedures to allow for the acceptance and rapid translation of pleadings in languages other than English, including petitions for orders of protection, as well as translations of orders of protection and custody determinations; and
• Improved services at first point of contact, such as training and certification of bilingual judiciary employees and the use of live chat machines, to assist LEP individuals and those with disabilities.

In this webinar the participant will:

• Facilitate greater access to justice by fostering more culturally and linguistically responsive practices in the courts
• Highlight promising practices and procedures to improve court access for individuals who have limited English proficiency, are Deaf or Hard of Hearing, or have low literacy levels
• Identify ways to adapt and improve existing programs and services to operate under the constraints of the pandemic and improve access for individuals who face additional barriers
