By Palgrave Macmillan
ean: 9781137332660, isbn: 1137332662,
How can defendants be tried if they cannot understand the charges being raised against them? Can a witness testify if the judges and attorneys cannot understand what the witness is saying?

By Oxford University Press
ean: 9780199535477, isbn: 0199535477,

By Routledge
ean: 9781138278493, isbn: 9781138278493,
In recent years, few federal requirements have been as controversial as the mandate for what critics call 'bilingual ballots'. The Voting Rights Act of 1965 included a permanent requirement for language assistance for Puerto Rican voters educated in Spanish and ten years later Congress banned English-only elections in certain covered jurisdictions, expanding the support to include Alaska Natives, American Indians, Asian-language voters and Spanish-language voters.
