About Us

The experienced authoritative source for court services

For more than 50 years, the National Center for State Courts (NCSC) has shared authoritative knowledge and expertise to address current and emerging issues and trends in state court administration. NCSC’s mission today—promoting the rule of law and improving the administration of justice in state courts and courts around the world—springs logically from its original purpose to gather information and produce innovations to benefit all courts.

As an independent, non-profit organization, NCSC can move swiftly to identify and respond to evolving needs, deploying resources when and where courts need them. Our team of experienced researchers and consultants help courts address issues ranging from access to justice to cybersecurity to racial justice. Resources include webinars, on-site or remote technical assistance, education and training, and direct consulting. Our International Division works in dozens of countries around the world supporting rule of law efforts.

Our work is designed to make a difference. As the only organization that enjoys collaborative relationships with the Conference of Chief Justices, Conference of State Court Administrators and other associations of judicial leaders, NCSC has unique insight into the most pressing challenges and opportunities facing state courts. Join us today in our work to improve the administration of justice.
