Judge Efrain Alvarado will do a 75-minute webcast on Judicial Independence. Judicial Independence is a recognized principle that individual judges must decide matters before them on the merits, not outside influences. This webcast will explore what that means, the current views of judicial immunity, and factors that contribute or detract from judicial independence.
After attending this webcast, you will be able to:
- Understand history and meaning of judicial independence;
- Identify factors which support or impede judicial independence; and
- Identify strategies for establishing relationships and opening and maintaining lines of communication with the executive and legislative branches (as well as stakeholders and the communities we serve.)
