On September 22, 2011, the Administrative Conference and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) co-hosted a workshop on promising agency practices to ensure that individuals with limited English proficiency (LEP individuals) have meaningful access to administrative hearings and proceedings pursuant to Executive Order 13166.

The workshop featured opening remarks by Paul Verkuil, Chairman of the Administrative Conference; Thomas Perez, Assistant Attorney General for the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division; and Mark Childress, Senior Counselor for the U.S. Department of Justice Access to Justice Initiative.

The workshop also featured two panels of experts from within the federal government, who discussed addressing language access issues in federal agency administrative hearings and proceedings and a variety of promising practices, including the cost-effectiveness of addressing language barrier issues prior to a hearing or proceeding.
