The mission of the Judicial Engagement Network (JEN) is to identify, engage, encourage, and support Judges nationally who will lead the effort to improve court responses to domestic and teen dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.

Who We Are

The Judicial Engagement Network (JEN) is a national community of engaged judges and judicial officers leading efforts to improve community responses and judicial and court practices to domestic and dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. We are here to offer technical assistance, tools, and training.

Purpose Statement

The Judicial Engagement Network (JEN) will identify, connect and bring together judges on a regular basis to promote cutting-edge best practices, increase access to justice, provide resources for continuing judicial education and encourage collaboration among all judges in order to improve responses to domestic and teen dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.

A Network for Judges by Judges

Where It All Began

The Judicial Engagement Network (JEN) began as an identified need to engage the judiciary in communities to strive for judicial excellence. Because courts hold a unique position in protecting social values, it places judges in an important position to lead changes in their own courts and communities. Through JEN, judges and judicial officers will be able to connect within a network of judges to promote best judicial practices, trends, and successful outcomes that are based on principle and better outcomes for families.  Judges will be able to, in a network of their peers, craft and hone leadership skills to effect change in their communities, share practices, and pass knowledge to the next generation of judges.
