Throughout the month of January, the AOIC hosted six regional meetings across the state to engage judges, court personnel, interpreters, legal advocates, and other interested stakeholders on language access issues.
The meetings occurred in Peoria, Springfield, Champaign, Sycamore, Chicago, and Mt. Vernon. Attendees discussed challenges in addressing language access in Illinois circuit courts. The presentation provided an overview of our legal obligations to provide meaningful language access to limited English proficient persons, and reviewed implementation solutions for the Language Access Plans.
