Language Access Plan (LAP)
Language Access Plan (LAP) for the Fourth Judicial District
The Language Access Plan listed above serves as the plan for the Fourth Judicial District to provide services to limited English proficient (LEP) individuals in compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; 45 C.F.R. Part 80 et seq; and 28 C.F.R. Part 42 et seq. The purpose of this plan is to provide a framework for the provision of timely and reasonable language assistance to LEP persons who come into contact with the Fourth Judicial District Court serving Hennepin County.
This LAP was developed to ensure equal access to court services for persons with limited English proficiency and hearing impaired persons. Although deaf and hard of hearing individuals are covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) rather than Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, they have been included in this plan insofar as they relate to the MN Judicial Branch Court Interpreter Program.
