Hotel & Travel Information

This Institute is designed specifically for state and tribal judicial officers who are new to the juvenile and family court bench, or who are returning to this bench after other assignments and desire a refresher course. The curriculum for this intensive 4 ½ day Institute, previously known as Core College, is designed to encourage core competencies for juvenile and family court judges, and includes (but is not limited to) coverage of judicial leadership and the role of the judge, ethics, decision-making, evidence, child and adolescent development, schools and the court, trauma-informed justice, abuse and neglect, delinquency, interpersonal violence, custody, divorce, self-represented litigants, judicial safety and security, and dealing with the media.

Accordingly, this training prepares judicial scholars for participation in other NCJFCJ institutes providing in-depth treatment of topics in the areas of family law, delinquency, dependency, and domestic violence. Institute faculty includes sitting and/or retired judicial officers, as well as content area experts from both academic and applied settings. Please note that with advance notice, NCJFCJ staff can facilitate a “testing-for-credit option” for judicial officers enrolled in the Judicial Studies program at the University of Nevada, Reno.
