38 New Judges of the Limited Jurisdiction Courts Complete Orientation

March 2003

     Because Limited Jurisdiction Courts process more than a million cases annually and handle millions of dollars in revenue every year, Chief Justice Jones directed that existing training for new limited jurisdiction judges be expanded and the curriculum revised to provide new judges with every opportunity to acquire the information and skills needed to perform their jobs.
     The Limited Jurisdiction Court New Judge Orientation program provides training on relevant laws, procedures, and rules for limited jurisdiction judges. Teaching methods focus on participatory learning and on giving new judges the opportunity to practice what they are learning. In addition, an assessment component measures the participantsí comprehension of the material.
     The project is overseen by the Limited Jurisdiction New Judge Orientation Planning Committee, whose members include limited jurisdiction court judges, administrators and attorneys.
     In March, Chief Justice Jones and Justice Rebecca White Berch presented 38 judges with certificates for completing the program.
