The Judicial Engagement Network (JEN) is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2021 national cohort of fellows. The JEN Fellowship Program will allow judges to enhance their skills as judicial leaders within the court and in their communities around domestic and teen dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. Click below for additional information and to complete the application.

The JEN is a unique project led by judges for judges seeking to improve court and community responses to domestic violence. We are seeking applications for projects focused on creating systems change in communities and courts to address the intersections of domestic violence and the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic, racial injustice and bias within systems, or institutional barriers to access to justice. Technical assistance, resources, and support to JEN are provided by the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) and the Center for Court Innovation (CCI).

The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges ("NCJFCJ") is committed to diversity in every aspect of its composition and in performing its mission. Diversity in the judiciary is vital to upholding public trust and confidence in the legal system. Diversity in this context refers to communities and individuals who are identified by race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religion, age, or disability status. We are offering a unique opportunity for judges to connect and engage with their peers to benefit their court and communities.

The fight against racism is inseparable from the Center for Court Innovation’s mission to create a fair, effective, and humane justice system. The Center is committed to anti-racism and fights racism in all forms.
