The Institute for New Juvenile and Family Court Judges is designed specifically for state and tribal judicial officers who are new to the juvenile and family court bench or who are returning to the bench after other assignments and desire a refresher course.
This intensive 4½ day program, previously known as Core College, is designed so participants can leave with increased knowledge, practical tools, and an essential foundation of best practice to use in the cases coming before them. A strong faculty of current and former judicial officers and content area experts from academic and applied settings will share their insight on ethical issues, child and adolescent development, schools and courts, the Indian Child Welfare Act, 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 that delve further into the topic areas of family law, delinquency, dependency, and domestic violence. Please note that with advance notice, NCJFCJ staff can facilitate a “testing-for-credit option” for participants enrolled in the Judicial Studies program at the University of Nevada, Reno.
This Institute is designed for judicial officers who are new to the juvenile and family court bench or who are returning to the bench after other assignments.
