File Size:1MB


First we studied, and attempted to articulate, the principles that have guided and grounded the judicial branch since its founding. We then examined how business is currently conducted in the courts throughout our state. Through on-site visits, personal interviews, surveys, group discussion, public hearings, and statistical analysis, we sought to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the system as it exists. We then went about the hard work of visualizing an ideal judicial branch for the year 2020, and the even harder work of proposing realistic ways to achieve that vision in harmony with our core values.
