About the Language Access Services Division

The Los Angeles Superior Court Language Access Services Division provides multilingual interpretation and general language services in court proceedings to ensure meaningful participation in the judicial court process for individuals with limited English proficiency. In doing so, the Court promotes equal access to justice and guarantees court procedures are fair and understandable for court users from diverse cultural backgrounds.

The Court provides bilingual staff at most Clerk’s Offices. When bilingual staff is not available, the Court provides telephonic interpreter assistance using the services of an outside language provider.

The Court assigns qualified court interpreters in court proceedings at no cost in the following areas: criminal, juvenile delinquency, juvenile dependency, probate, mental health, family law, civil harassment, unlawful detainer (eviction), traffic, small claims, and other civil cases.

If you need the services of an interpreter, you may request one from the courtroom staff at the time of your hearing. For court users with eviction, small claims and other civil cases who speak a language other than Spanish, the Court has a web portal to request an interpreter in advance of a hearing. Spanish interpreters are assigned to all court locations; therefore, there is no need to request a Spanish interpreter in advance.

Interpreters are provided at no cost where a party or witness who uses a sign language is present and participating in a court proceeding.
