Featured Programs

  • Judicial Branch Audit

      Judicial Branch Audit reviews all financial business areas within the judiciary. The judicial auditors also assist the judicial branch to ensure proper internal control over court business functions and serves as an independent appraiser of the judiciary’s business activities. Through analyses, appraisals, recommendations, and counsel, the auditors provide help and information to assist courts to promote effective controls and follow sound business practices. The role of the judicial branch auditors is to promote a high level of public trust in the judiciary by providing a professional, independent, and objective review of judicial business functions.

  • Judicial Eduction

      The AOC supports the Judicial Leadership Summit, a conference held every 4 years, that brings together all levels of Nevada’s judiciary at one location to share information and explore issues of mutual concern.The education and training provided through this judicial education hones the judges’ judicial skills and fosters a template for equal justice throughout Nevada’s courts. The Leadership Summit ensures equal justice comes, in part, from Nevada Appellate Court opinions and court rules, but also requires that judges interact and share their experiences so a common goal is achieved.
