Staying innovative in a world of change has its challenges. Progressive learning is our passion, and we continually update our curricula and seek out new methods of delivery to enhance that learning experience. As such, the College now offers Web-based and online learning modules, as well as innovative webcast opportunities that provide participants educational flexibility that was not available even a year ago. We believe that building on this innovative platform of technology and learning will enable the NJC to reach our judicial audiences more effectively and efficiently well into the future.
The NJC offers courses all year and the calendar is divided up into a chronological listing and an alphabetical listing. For an electronic file of the NJC Course Calendar you can download the Courses at a Glance PDF.
