Safeguarding the future of our profession,
because independence should not mean isolation.
The Association of Independent Judicial Interpreters of California (AIJIC) is a nonprofit trade association started by a group of certified court interpreters who saw the need to take action in order to protect the legal interpreting profession in the private sector, which has been steadily deteriorating in recent years.
The purpose of AIJIC is to represent the interests of independent court interpreters before the Judicial Council of California and in Sacramento in order to have a voice in matters that directly affect our profession.
Our goal is to Educate the legal community and agencies about the current laws governing court interpreters, particularly sections 68560.5 and 68561 of the Government Code of California, and to educate new interpreters about matters related to the profession.
