Americans with Disabilities Act

 Court Access for Individuals with Disabilities

The Rhode Island Judiciary (Judiciary) is committed to providing equal access to all services, programs, and proceedings of the courts in a manner that includes individuals with disabilities as much as possible, consistent with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), and other applicable laws.

The Judiciary provides reasonable accommodations upon request for qualified individuals with disabilities to ensure equal access to the services, programs, and proceedings of the courts. This policy is for all court users including litigants, jurors, attorneys, and other individuals who interact with our state courts.

The Judiciary does not discriminate on the basis of disability in hiring or employment practices. Employees and potential employees can contact the Administrative Office of State Courts, Office of Employee Relations, to arrange a workplace accommodation.​
