Master's and Ph.D. in Judicial Studies

The Judicial Studies Degree provides a formal academic setting in which trial judges or juvenile and family court judges can integrate technical studies of the judiciary with more academic ones in an effort to provide an intellectual assessment of the role of the American judiciary. The program is a collaboration between the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), The National Judicial College (NJC) and the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ). A major academic objective of the degree program is to help create and define a new academic discipline, judicial studies. Receiving a master’s degree in judicial studies recognizes current accomplishments in judicial studies, encourages further achievements and enhances one's career. A Ph.D. is available to judges who achieve the Master of Judicial Studies degree.
