National Judicial College Releases Free Web Course for New Judges
The National Judicial College (NJC) has just released a new web-based course titled, Taking the Bench. This is one of several SJI courses funded by SJI this fiscal year (SJI-12-E-072), and is free of charge. This 6 to 9 hour self-study course is for prospective judges to take after election or appointment before taking the bench. The course may also be of interest to judges who have recently taken the bench.
