La Barrera del Lenguaje en la Sistema de Justicia Criminal
I will be presenting an analysis of the language barrier within the criminal justice system, focusing on what it is, how it affects communities, what kinds of communities it affects more, and ways to help to tear down this barrier. There are language barriers in many fields, but I will specifically focus on why it is such a big deal in the Criminal Justice system. My project will be fully written and presented in Spanish as it is a project for my Spanish major.
