National Conference of State Trial Judges


Aside from the benefits that you receive as a member of the ABA, the Judicial Division and the Conference, as a NCSTJ member, you will have access to the Conference's many committees and other entities which provide members with a lively and open forum for analysis, debate and education.

NCSTJ Committees focus on improving the judicial process and the quality of justice. Our committees have produced numerous publications, including books on juvenile violence, judicial performance evaluation, court delay reduction and judicial fringe benefits, as well as a reference book for the orientation of new judges. Committees address such issues as judicial immunity, compensation, retirement and benefits, performance evaluation, jury standards, literacy, victim's rights and funding for the court system.

Enroll via your myABA profile online or you may contact [email protected] with which committees you'd like to join.
