NJC co-produces procedural fairness bench card

Fresh off the press—this procedural fairness bench card was published last Thursday. We invite you to print it to keep in your chambers or share with your colleagues.

The bench card defines procedural fairness and procedural justice and explains why the concepts matter. The card also provides tips on how to implement and measure fairness in your court.

The bench card was jointly produced by the College, the American Judges Association, the Center for Court Innovation, and the National Center for State Courts.
