This short course is the result of a collaboration between the State Justice Institute (SJI), and the National Judicial College (NJC). The State Justice Institute (SJI) was established by federal law in 1984 to award grants to improve the quality of justice in state courts, and foster innovative, efficient solutions to common issues faced by all courts. The entire course takes the average learner about 20 minutes to complete.
