Maine Supreme Judicial Court Chief Justice Valerie Stanfill has approved an advisory committee to improve access to the courts for those who have limited English proficiency or having hearing challenges.

In recent years, the Maine Judicial Branch created an “Access Team” to identify and remove barriers that may affect access to justice. Now, a Limited English Proficiency (LEP) advisory committee will help assist court administrative offices, judicial leadership, trial court judges, and other court personnel with issues associated with access to the court system by those with limited English proficiency or those who are hard of hearing, according to the amended charter issued Dec. 22.
