Web Courses

The NJC’s web-based courses allow participants to study at any time and interact with many judges from around the country in a collegial online atmosphere. Expert faculty members will challenge participants with self-tests, assignments, and reading that can be completed anywhere a judge has access to an Internet-ready computer. Each course will meet for at least two prescheduled Web conferences hosted by the faculty.

Schedule subject to change.
