Your court needs a strong leader. Learn how to tackle human resources issues, budget complications, and other management challenges while you hone your management, leadership and communication skills.


As a result of this five-day class, presiding judges, assistant presiding judges, administrative law judges, chief judges, and chief administrative law judges will hone their management, leadership, and communication skills.

After attending this course, participants will be able to identify the characteristics of effective presiding judge/court administration teams and manage conflict between team members; supervise staff and other judges with confidence; employ innovative court administrative procedures; develop effective budget plans; and deal effectively with the other two branches of government.

Pre-course online materials will be available for judges to complete approximately six weeks prior to the course start date. At that time, participants will receive an email with the website location and their login information. Participants should plan to set aside approximately two to four hours of time to review and complete the materials prior to the course.

This course qualifies as an elective for the Certificate in Judicial Development, General Jurisdiction Trial Skills, and Special Court Trial Skills programs.
