How courts can improve appearance rates and reduce harmful outcomes by focusing on procedural fairness
People may struggle with their court obligations, particularly the requirement to appear in court, for any number of reasons. This webinar will focus on procedural fairness as it relates to court appearance rates and how courts respond to missed appearances. Panelists will discuss how procedural fairness strategies can help promote voluntary compliance with court attendance and participation, and how courts can work to reduce or eliminate common barriers to appearance.
Panelists (subject to change):
- Judge Donna Mowrer, Ninth Judicial District of New Mexico
- Judge Zuberi Williams, Montgomery County, Maryland District Court
- Court Administrator Mankinta Holloway, Birmingham, Alabama Municipal Court
