Hmong-English Legal Glossary

This glossary defines more than 800 common court terms and suggests equivalent Hmong phrases for many of them. It defines both general court terms and specific terms for criminal, juvenile, family, eviction, small claims, probate, and deportation cases.

The glossary grows out of a collaboration of the Wisconsin and Minnesota courts, the Minnesota Translation Lab (Dr. Laurence H. Bogoslaw, director), the Marathon County Bar Association, Southeast Asian Outreach Committee, and Hmong contributors from Minnesota and Wisconsin. The interpreting was funded by a grant from the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development Bureau of Migrant, Refugee, and Labor Services. The printing was funded by a grant from the State Bar of Wisconsin Local Bar Grant Competition.

The 75-page glossary can be downloaded at the Wisconsin Court System's website.
