ABOUT THE NJC
The NJC is proud of its history of achievement over 50 years and is grateful to those who have helped us along the way. Yet our commitment to the thousands of judges we have served, and to those we have yet to serve, remains key to our mission of advancing justice through judicial education. In 2013, The National Judicial College will be celebrating a golden milestone – its 50th anniversary of proudly serving the men and women of our nation’s judiciary. Almost a half century ago judges and lawyers came together to create a new entity to address the educational needs of our nation’s judiciary. Today, the NJC stands as a testament to the thousands of judges who have come to the College seeking to enhance their professional skills. The College’s golden anniversary year will not only be a time to reflect on the achievements of the past – it will also be a time of renewed commitment to the tenets of our mission: education – innovation – advancing justice.
