In 2018, The National Judicial College held cooperative agreements with the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance. The NJC serves as a sub-recipient on U.S. Department of Justice cooperative agreements with the University of North Dakota School of Law Tribal Judicial Institute, the Council of State Governments, and the American Probation and Parole Association.
The NJC also serves as a sub-recipient on a U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration cooperative agreement awarded to the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry. This is an important collaboration between medical professionals and the legal system on the topic of opioids.
The NJC partnered with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Commercial Driver’s License program to provide traffic safety education to judges.
The NJC also receives grants from the State Justice Institute, a nonprofit organization established by federal law in 1984 to award grants to improve the quality of justice in state courts, and to foster innovative, efficient solutions to common issues faced by all courts.
