This course will offer a historical and societal context for the development of the modern court system. 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. 

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.

The Institute of Court Management (ICM) trained each Nevada Fellow during a train-the-trainer program. This is the first of six courses to be offered by Nevada-led ICM Fellows over next three years. This is a unique opportunity to learn national standards from a Nevada perspective.

The course is open to judges, court administrators, supervisors and other court leaders seeking certification in recognized judicial and court operating standards. Participants are responsible for their own lodging and travel arrangements. The cost of registration for this course is $395.
