Mentoring Interpreters of New and Emerging Languages

RMIT University and Language Loop created a simple but impactful initiative designed to mentor interpreters of new and emerging languages within the Victorian court and tribunal system.

The project aimed to promote the fair administration of justice for all Victorians and included a free 12 hour training module for interpreters of new and emerging languages.

This mentorship program has helped countless Victorians attain their basic right to a fair legal system. This is achieved through access to better-informed interpreters within the state’s justice system.
