Modern Court Governance

Strong governance is the key to well-run courts, yet the organizational structure of courts, the autonomy of individual judges, and other factors make courts notoriously difficult to govern.  In this course, participants learn how to apply the principles of good governance to court operations. Using the historical framework of the judicial branch and courts as institutions, the National Association for Court Management’s Court Governance Core materials, and organizational theory, this course explores how court executives can improve their own courts’ governance.
