American Judges Association
Date of this Version
We begin this issue with remarks given by Roger Warren on the need to tie preservation of judicial independence with a healthy dose of judicial accountability. Warren is a former judge and the former president of the National Center for State Courts. He argues that we focus on the things we can control, not those we don’t. He urges us to take a leadership role in getting our own house in order and in making sure we’re accountable to the public both for our use of funds and for our fidelity to fairness.
