The National Center for State Courts just published the 2015 installment of “Trends in State Courts.”  Several of the national court leaders published in the 2015 Trends in State Courts have connections to NASJE:

  • Former NASJE Vice President and current Chief Of Court Operations at San Mateo (CA) Superior Court Elizabeth Evans wrote the article Applying Risk Management Principles to Court Oversight.
  • Current NASJE Member Julie McDonald who serves as Education Attorney at the Indiana Judicial Center wrote the article Collaboration to Reduce Reliance on Juvenile Detention.
  • NASJE Conference attendee and speaker Kevin Burke who serves as a District Judge in Hennepin County Minnesota wrote the article Innovative Courts Encourage Dissent.

The full NCSC 2015 Trends in State Courts publication is available at the NCSC website.  The full text of past “Trends” articles, categorized by topic, are also posted on the site.

And speaking about…
