About

The North Carolina Judicial Branch is committed to removing barriers that hinder equal access to justice by individuals with limited English proficiency (LEP). This commitment serves the court’s interest in ensuring accurate communication in court proceedings, protecting the integrity of evidence, and providing language access policies, services, and resources that enhance the quality and availability of interpreting and translation services in North Carolina state courts. Fulfilling this commitment will require substantial time, effort, and resources, and the Judicial Branch is committed to taking all reasonable steps to provide meaningful access to its courts for all individuals, regardless of national origin, ethnicity or limited ability to read, write, speak, or understand English.
