Website Accessibility Statement

The Massachusetts Judicial Branch is striving to achieve meaningful accessibility to this online environment for all users, including users with disabilities. Our goal is to comply with Commonwealth enterprise standards designed to meet the needs of our constituencies with disabilities. The Commonwealth enterprise standards are generally based on standards used by the Federal government for technology accessibility for people with disabilities, and web content accessibility guidelines developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
