How to Enroll

Visit the NJC Online Registration page.


Course Cancellation Policy

The National Judicial College reserves the right to cancel or reschedule any listed course. If a course is cancelled, a full refund of all fees paid for the course will be issued. In the event that a course must be cancelled, the NJC will provide at least 30 days notice. If a course is cancelled and the participant has purchased airline tickets, the NJC will reimburse the participant for the cost of the change ticket fee if the participant transfers to another course within one year. If the participant elects not to transfer into another course, the NJC will reimburse only the tuition and conference fees that the participant has paid. The NJC reserves the right to limit the enrollment in any scheduled class.


Participant Cancellation Policy

A full tuition and conference fee refund is available if your cancellation notice is received 30 days prior to the start date of the course; otherwise, a $50 cancellation fee will be assessed.


Enrollment/Fee Payment

Enrollment is subject to receipt of a course registration form for each participant. Tuition and conference fee must be paid in full or certified for payment prior to the first class session. The NJC accepts personal checks, traveler’s checks, cash, credit cards (Discover, MasterCard, Visa and American Express) or a signed purchase order from the responsible agency.


Confirmation Notice

Each participant will be sent an electronic confirmation of enrollment. If an email confirmation is not received within 7 business days following a registration submittal, please contact the NJC Registrar’s Office at: (800) 255-8343 or (775) 784-6747 or registrar@judges.org.


Tuition Fee

Tuition fees include all course materials. There is no additional fee for computer use in lab classes.


Conference Fee

The mandatory conference fee provides for program costs of daily lunches, breaks and special events.


Group Rates

Discounted group rates may be available for some NJC courses held in Reno. Please call the Business Office at (800) 25-JUDGE for more information.


Financial Assistance

Financial support from individual contributors and foundations, as well as the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), state IOLTA funds, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and several state traffic safety agencies provide financial assistance for judicial education and training for the nation’s judiciary. Individual states may also have sources of funding available. For further information about applying for financial assistance to attend NJC programs, please send an email to njc-scholarships@judges.org or call us at (800) 25-JUDGE or (775) 327-8269.


Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Credits

CLE credits are provided to participants via a uniform certificate of attendance form upon completion of applicable NJC courses. Participants are responsible for filing this form with their states’ Continuing Legal Education Commissions or Boards where required. While NJC courses are nationally recognized by CLE Commissions or Boards, participants are asked to please follow their states’ specific filing rules to have their CLE credits approved. If further clarification is needed, please contact the NJC Registrar’s Office at: (800) 255-8343 or (775) 784-6747.


Copyright of Materials

All materials produced for courses are copyrighted by the College or reproduced with permission of the copyright holder. It is a violation of federal law to reproduce copyrighted materials without permission of the copyright holder.


Tape Recording

Tape recording of courses is not permitted. All rights are reserved by The National Judicial College.


Classroom Visitors

It is the policy of the NJC to restrict visitors to the classroom to ensure free and open discussion among the participants and faculty. Exceptions may be authorized only by the academic director.


Office Hours

The National Judicial College’s office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Pacific Time, Monday through Friday.



The National Judicial College has a responsibility to the funding agencies that sponsor your attendance. The NJC must ensure that the tax dollars spent on continuing education are utilized for maximum benefit. It is, therefore, the policy and practice of the NJC not to award a Certificate of Completion to any participant who fails to attend all educational sessions. Participants who are unable to attend a class session(s) due to an emergency situation must contact the program attorney/manager for the course immediately.

If any portion of the course is missed, a participant may have to submit a written project determined in consultation with the program attorney/manager for the course. Failure to receive written permission or completion of the written project may result in the denial of the Certificate of Completion and notification to the funding agency and/or revocation of financial assistance.


Child Care

The University of Nevada’s Child and Family Research Center (CFRC), located in the College of Human and Community Sciences Sarah H. Fleischmann Building on the UNR campus, offers programs for children ages 6 weeks to 6 years on a space-available basis. For information about availability, costs, times and registration, participants can call the CFRC office at (775) 784-6762 and identify themselves as NJC participants.


Persons with Disabilities

We will make every effort to ensure that the NJC courses are held at facilities which are fully accessible to persons with disabilities. If you plan to attend a course and will need special facilities, assistance or accommodations relating to a disability or if you have special dietary requirements, please notify the NJC registrar at registrar@judges.org or (800) 255-8343 or (775) 784-6747 or fax us at (775) 784-1269.



There are several places to park on the UNR campus. Click here for more information on parking at the University campus. Specific instructions on obtaining parking passes will be included in the package of information each participant receives upon confirmation of registration.


Privacy Policy

The NJC will periodically use your contact information to send you additional course information. We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your identifiable personal information. Click here for the NJC's Privacy Policy.
