In a democracy, every citizen or entity deserves access to a fair, impartial and expert settler of disputes and administrator of justice. Most problems a society faces will eventually involve the justice system. That makes judicial education both a necessity and a never-ending pursuit.
Created in 1963 at the recommendation of a Supreme Court justice, The National Judicial College is the country’s oldest, largest, and most widely attended school for judges. Each year judges from all 50 states and several foreign countries study with the College, either in person or online. The NJC has been called the “gold standard” and “The Harvard of Judicial Education,” and its stated mission is “to make the world a more just place by educating and inspiring its judiciary.”
