ICM Fellows Program







The ICM Fellows Program (formerly the Court Executive Development Program) is the flagship program of the National Center for State Court's Institute for Court Management. The only program of its kind in the United States, the Fellows Program traces its history to Chief Justice Warren E. Burger's call for improved management of court administration. The overall purpose of the Fellows Program is leadership development. Successful graduates of the Fellows program earn the distinction of being a Fellow of the Institute for Court Management and contribute to the growing literature on court administration.

Program Overview

The Fellows Program is the highest and most demanding certification available from ICM. Becoming an ICM Fellow is a process of contiual professional development that enhances the knowledge, skills, and abilities of court administrators while providing leadership instruction in areas of functional responsibility associated with court administration. The four phases build upon each other and challenge participants to further develop analytical, administrative, and communication skills.
