2021 Judicial Education Offerings

The Cady Initiative and partner organizations offer a number of virtual courses as part of their commitment to help courts realize change. Other educational opportunities are also available.  An example of a virtual course, is below.

Strategic Planning and Strong Leadership for the Family Court

The family court needs judges who exhibit strong leadership, advocate for ample training and resources, and lead improvement efforts. The Strategic Planning and Strong Leadership course provides a structure for court leaders and managers to assess what is needed to ensure that family law matters receive appropriate recognition, training, funding, and strong leadership. This course will help participants establish a vision and a strategic plan as a means to define priorities and allocate limited court resources.

As a result of participating in this course, participants will be able to:

  • Assess family court performance issues from a principle-based perspective. Identify strengths and opportunities with regards to problem-solving techniques, trauma-responsive practices, case management and services such as Self-Help and Alternative Dispute Resolution.
  • Understand the leadership, case management teams, and organizational foundations required to create and implement a strong family court.
  • Draft a plan for implementing a successful change effort in their own family court.
The complete list of judicial education offerings is here.
