Committees

Court Statistics Committee

The work of the Court Statistics Project is guided by the Court Statistics Committee of the Conference of State Court Administrators (COSCA). For over 30 years, the Conference of State Court Administrators (COSCA) and the National Center for State Courts (NCSC) have worked as partners to provide a national authoritative and comparative source of information on the work and organization of the state courts.  The court community’s participation in the project is made manifest through the active participation of COSCA, the National Association for Court Management (NACM), and the National Conference of Appellate Court Clerks (NCACC) in the Court Statistics Committee.

Joint Technology Committee (JTC)

The Joint Technology Committee was established by COSCA, NACM and NCSC to:

  • develop and promote technology standards for the courts;
  • improve court processes and business practices;
  • ensure adequate education and training for court leaders in technology; and
  • collaborate with the justice community and other stakeholders.

Issues currently being addressed:
