Women in the Courts Task Force Seeks New Members
The Women in the Courts Task Force consists of members from various sectors, including public interest, academia, and private practice. The Task Force in recent years has worked to address issues impacting women as litigants, and in the past year the Task Force has been focused on language access/court interpreting and elder law issues. This year the Task Force plans to continue its involvement with language access issues in the courts, sponsor a panel on these issues, and continue to work with Justice Speaks to monitor progress on the OCA's 2006 action plan, as well as broaden its agenda to include other issues impacting women in the courts.
