EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION IN THE COURTS
Program Description: Effective communication is a rudiment of procedural and substantive due process. Notwithstanding mandates imposed by the Americans with Disabilities Act, Civil Rights Act, NYS and NYC Human Rights laws, courts and tribunals have not always given adequate consideration to communicating with individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind, low vision, developmentally or cognitively limited, or having limited English language proficiency. This seminar will spotlight potential communication barriers to heighten judicial awareness and propose solutions to enhance access to justice.
