During this course, you will learn to:
- Identify solutions to the current problems experienced by many in the justice system;
- Refine ideas for making academicians, fellow judges, the legal system, and the public more satisfied with the justice system; and
- Educate others about potential solutions to advance the promise of equal justice under law.
In an interactive format, the panel and participants will examine the following questions in an effort at refining thoughts about the best ways to improve the system: What do law school deans and jurists think are the biggest issues facing the justice system today? What improvements can law school deans and judges employ to create lasting beneficial change? Do law school deans and judges have an obligation to educate the public about the justice system and how it should work? If so, what are some ways to educate effectively to improve public trust and confidence? How might the academy and bench better collaborate to strengthen both the workings of our system of justice and confidence in its integrity?
