Nevada Judicial History Database

Nevada Judicial History Database Search

This database contains information, gathered from many resources, on terms of office for judges throughout Nevada since statehood. One of the primary sources of information from statehood to the 1980s was from a project that compiled all the judicial election information into one binder, which was sponsored by the Judicial Historical Society. Much of the remaining information was from files within the Administrative Office of the Courts. Lastly, some of the information came from the courts who had completed their own historical review of records. Learn about the creation of the Nevada Judicial History Database.
