CJD 06-03 Regarding Language Interpreters and Court Access Amended

On Wednesday, June 1, 2016, the Colorado State Judicial Branch announced that Chief Justice Directive 06-03, “Directive Concerning Language Interpreters and Access to the Courts by Persons of Limited English Proficiency,” was amended, effective May 31, 2016.

The changes to the Chief Justice Directive include updating the name of the Office of Language Access, which was formerly known as the Court Interpreter Program, and minor editorial changes to clarify the use of certified and credentialed interpreters for both in-person and telephonic events in order to further the Judicial Department’s mission of ensuring people of limited English proficiency have full access to the courts.
