Effective Pretrial Decision Making: A Model Curriculum for Judges
Following the Conference of Chief Justices and the Conference of State Court Administrators’ recent calls for reforms in pretrial release decision making, the National Judicial College and the Pretrial Justice Institute, through funding from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, have developed a four-hour live, interactive training for judges on effective, legal and evidence-based pretrial release decision making. The curriculum was designed with extensive input from judges from around the country, following a national survey of judges on their pretrial release training needs. We are seeking to pilot this curriculum in several jurisdictions.
