Interpreter/Language Access Services
The Judiciary has a responsibility to ensure those with limited English proficiency (LEP) and those who are deaf or hard of hearing are not at a disadvantage to fully exercise their right to due process under the law.

The 51st Judicial ensures these rights through the implementation of a Language Access Plan. This document can be viewed by clicking below. (A signed copy can be viewed at the Court Administration Office, 117 Baltimore Street, Gettysburg, PA 17325).
