Interpreters                

 

Interpreters can be arranged for people appearing in Drug Court, so they are not disadvantaged.

People who are attending court may need interpreters because they:

  • have a hearing impairment and use sign language
  • find it hard to comprehend English and, as a result, are prevented from fully participating in all or part of the court proceedings.

All clients of a Drug Court have a right to have an interpreter present in any court proceeding free of charge.

If you need an interpreter, you can contact LawAccess NSW through the Telephone and Interpreting Service on 131 450.
