The ABA Judicial Division’s Judicial Outreach Network Committee urges active and retired judges to invite their communities to their courthouses and to go out into their communities during National Judicial Outreach Week 2023 to meet with the public, in person or virtually, and talk about the Rule of Law and the work courts do every day.
The Judicial Outreach Network prepared a National Judicial Outreach Week Information Packet that explains the how and why of Judicial Outreach Week. The Judicial Outreach Network also developed a concise PowerPoint presentation entitled Preserving the Rule of Law (Judicial Version) (ALJ Version) and Speaker Notes that you can use or adapt to your own style and preferences. The presentation has been carefully crafted to provide an understandable description of the Rule of Law and to foster discussion between speakers and audiences.
Please also refer to the NJOW template phone script and template letter as part of our NJOW toolkit resources to recruit additional participants.
