Educating Judges at the Intersection of Law and Science

By Joy Lyngar

Most courses offered by the National Judicial College (NJC) have a scientific component. This focus on science is quite intentional and is based on need. NJC has identified the following topics as useful to judges. Each of the following seven examples is accompanied by a suggestion for an NJC course or publication addressing the topic. The last example describes how NJC uses science when we educate judges. We use the science behind adult learning to engage our judge students for maximum retention and practical application. NJC is not only the largest and the oldest judicial education organization—our classes are the most fun. It’s all backed up by science!
