Partnerships developed during NCSC’s Hybrid Hearings Improvement Initiative are helping courts like the 394th District Court in Brewster County, Texas, improve sound and audio quality in a historic, rural facility.

The Vermont Judiciary Commission on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is in the midst of a multi-phased initiative designed to advance racial and social equity by broadly identifying disparities in the justice system, understanding causes, evaluating solutions and implementing changes.

With the help of NCSC, Wyoming is developing a more organized, centralized strategic direction for their state courts and judges to help strengthen the branch, both internally and externally.
