Lawyers as Interpreters: Can you take the heat? CLE - 7/24/19

  • Image 1

Product Description

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin in programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. The U.S. Supreme Court has held that failing to take reasonable steps to ensure meaningful access for limited english proficient ("LEP") persons is a form of national origin discrimination prohibited by the Title VI. As the New Orleans LEP population has significantly increased over the years, so has the number of LEP individuals who use court programs and activities. This CLE is designed to give attorneys an appreciation of the significance of having an interpreter present in the courtroom, when needed, as well as an appreciation of all the mechanics involved in courtroom interpreting.

Speakers: Kimberly R. Silas, Louisiana Supreme Court
Dr. Lisbeth Philip, University of New Orleans
