A Study of The Feasibility of Establishing a Legal and Court Interpretation Service in Cook County, Illinois

Oct 01, 2000
  • Description

The purpose of this study is to explore the feasibility of establishing a Legal and Court Interpreting Service, modeled upon Heartland Alliance's successful Medical Interpreting Services program. As conceptualized, the Legal and Court Interpreting Service would benefit Chicago's immigrant and refugee population in two ways: providing needed language interpretation services in the legal and court system of Cook County and offering employment opportunities for immigrants and refugees.
