Supporting the Nation's Judicial System & the Public it Serves

NACM Plain Language Guide Re-Released as Downloadable PDF

Courts and legal services organizations are creating new resources to help people with legal issues navigate the justice system during the pandemic.  To support legal professionals engaged in these initiatives, the National Association for Court Management (NACM) is re-releasing theNACM Plain Language Guide as a free downloadable PDF.

NACM hopes that this comprehensive guide on how to incorporate plain language into court forms, websites, and other materials will help authors and designers create content and solutions that are easily understandable by everyone.  Even in these challenging times, courts and legal professionals are working hard to improve access to justice.  NACM applauds the undeterred efforts of the court community and will continue to serve as an access point for resources and timely information.
