Every day, when you take the bench, you have the opportunity to ensure that litigants leave your courtroom with greater respect for the justice system — whether they have won or lost their case. As a judge, you have the responsibility to ensure that the four key principles of procedural fairness (voice, respect, neutrality, and trust) are exhibited in your courtroom. With busy dockets and an increase in self-represented litigants, how can you be both efficient and effective in demonstrating these tenets?


After attending this course, participants will be able to:

  • Address the myriad of instances where your justice and procedural fairness changes the participant’s response ensuring greater compliance and respect for the court.
