LAP and other CLS staff have successfully challenged or are currently working on challenging the practices of a variety of government or government funded agencies for failure to provide meaningful access to persons with limited English proficiency (LEP).
We have advocated on behalf of LEP clients in the bankruptcy system, courts, the welfare department, children and youth services, law enforcement and health care.
Our staff have submitted critical commentary to federal agencies as they issued guidance on Title VI language access requirements, including the Justice Department, Health and Human Services and the Legal Services Corporation.
