Questions and Answers

The Judicial Council of California (JCC), chaired by the Chief Justice of California, is the policy-making body for the California judicial system. The California Constitution directs the Judicial Council to improve the administration of justice by surveying judicial business, recommending improvements to the courts, and adopting rules for court administration. 

The Judicial Council is also responsible for preparation and modification of Judicial Council forms for use by the courts, attorneys, and the public. It provides foreign language versions of forms and information sheets for educational purposes and ensures that foreign language versions of forms are modified in tandem with their English counterparts. Since most court users including those with Limited English proficiency (LEP) often rely on these forms throughout their court case, it is important that JCC forms are legally accurate, easy to understand, and easy to use. 

The Judicial Council seeks the services of an attorney consultant, with exemplary Spanish speaking and writing skills, to review the accuracy and completeness of legal forms, documents, correspondence, posters, brochures and other informative materials, web content, and software application text (including, but not limited to, Drupal) that have been translated from English to Spanish. As applicable, the attorney consultant will also make recommendations regarding revisions to the aforementioned material. Please note, the attorney consultant will be an independent contractor to the Judicial Council.

No employer-employee, partnership, joint venture, or agency relationship will exist between the attorney consultant and the Judicial Council or any other JBE. The attorney consultant will have no authority to bind or incur any obligation on behalf of the Judicial Council or any other JBE.
