Courts & Media

Dear Readers,

We are pleased to provide a listing of articles and speeches below that were published as a result of the Reynolds National Center for Courts and Media (RNCCM). After thoughtful consideration, future publication of the Reynolds Courts & Media Law Journal has been suspended indefinitely. However, previous issues can be accessed here:

The National Judicial College was proud to have most recently partnered with the Donald W. Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno on the Center for Courts and Media. We are grateful for the generous support of the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation who made the Center possible. Additional support was provided by donors to the Rollan D. Melton Fund, an endowment named for former NJC Trustee and Nevada journalist. The Fund will assist the College with carrying on the work of the Center in Rollan Melton’s name in perpetuity.

A new initiative that the College is developing involves preparing judges to handle intense media interest cases. Most high-profile cases do not involve the attention that the O. J. Simpson case generated. However, many cases are just as complex and involve high local attention. The National Judicial College has the faculty and expertise to assist judges involved in high profile cases. Stay tuned for additional information.

For further information, please do not hesitate to contact us at

Thank you for your continued support.

Hon. Chad C. Schmucker, President
The National Judicial College
