Recent Books

A group of researchers at the National Center for State Courts and in academia have made a significant contribution to the understanding of how trial courts are—and can be—managed in this book. They begin the book by noting the importance of this subject: “Courts are independent bodies only if they administer justice effectively. They administer justice effectively only if they have a sound management culture. Therefore, courts will be independent and effective only if they operate with a sound management culture.”

Upcoming Conference

The American Judges Association will hold its 51st annual educational conference October 3-8, 2010 at the Westin Tabor Center in Denver, Colorado. The conference should be our best ever—held in collaboration with the Colorado state courts and many other entities. For an overview of the conference program, take a look at the inside back cover. Then go to the AJA’s website for more information on the conference and full registration details. We hope to see you in Denver!
