The Elements of Judicial Excellence (EJE) are a set of knowledge, skills, abilities and other characteristics of being a great judge that emerged from lengthy consultations with Illinois judges.
The EJE framework was developed with support from SJI and the National Center for State Courts (NCSC). In the NJC’s 2019 printed catalog, courses are aligned with the Elements of Judicial Excellence. A graphic representation of the framework is on page 22.
