Our Mission: Education | Innovation | Advancing Justice
Since its founding more than 50 years ago, The National Judicial College has been the nation's premier judicial education institution. The NJC pursues its mission of education, innovation, and advancing justice with the support of individuals and organizations dedicated to preserving and improving the rule of law. Its supporters include scores of active and retired judges and attorneys along with government agencies and private foundations. Teaching at the NJC is a high honor, and most NJC courses are taught by judges who volunteer their time. The same is true of the members of the NJC's boards of trustees and visitors.

The NJC designs its foundational courses to provide new judges with the knowledge, skills and abilities needed to be effective jurists. For more experienced judges, the College offers a variety of continuing education courses on contemporary issues facing the judiciary. Recent topics have included co-occurring disorders, complex civil litigation, scientific experts/forensic evidence, ethics, cultural awareness and building a bias-free environment in the courtroom. Educational content is delivered in the form of tuition-based courses in Reno and in locations around the country; as part of federally funded grants or custom-designed courses; collaborations and private grant initiatives; and, increasingly, online webcasts and self-study courses. The faculty is typically drawn from exceptional members of the judiciary, primarily active or retired judges, who volunteer their time and expertise.
