Description:

This course is intended to provide a historical and societal context for the development of our court system as we know it today. Participants will explore the foundations of the third branch of government and assess whether their courts are performing as the Founding Fathers intended. In addition, participants will learn how courts balance their competing responsibilities of protecting the rights of citizens to due process of law, while also moving cases to disposition as efficiently as possible. This course is an opportunity for participants to consider how the principles underlying the purposes and responsibilities of courts, which are shared by all courts, can result in different ways of accomplishing the same goals. Participants will study different ways courts can be structured, different methods of managing cases and court calendars, as well as how to devise strategies to align court performance, court structure, court operations, and court processes with court purposes.
