Court Observation Program


Volunteer Courtroom Observation Program


Organizational Mission: Judicial performance evaluations provide judges, justices, and senior judges with useful information concerning their own performances, along with training resources to improve judicial performance as necessary. It also provides a comprehensive system of evaluating judicial performance to provide persons voting on the retention of judges, justices, and senior judges with fair, responsible, and constructive information about individual judicial performance. 


Program Purpose: The volunteer courtroom observer program is a system wide program comprised of volunteers who provide courtroom observation reports for use by the state and district commissions in judicial performance evaluations. Court observers play an important role in judicial evaluations as they provide first-hand observations of a judge's skill and behaviors in conducting their courtroom.
