The Standing Committee on Federal Judicial Improvements (SCFJI), the only ABA entity dedicated entirely to the substantive issues affecting the federal judiciary, conceives of, studies, and makes recommendations to the ABA on improvements to the federal judicial system. The Committee serves a vital role in the development of Association positions on legislative and administrative proposals potentially affecting the federal judiciary. The SCFJI also coordinates activities within the ABA relating to improvements in this arena. Finally, the Committee serves as a liaison between the ABA and the federal judiciary, as well as with other governmental and nongovernmental entities involved in judicial reform.
The Committee is composed of federal judges, practicing attorneys, and academics who provide a broad array of experience and viewpoints.
The Standing Committee is housed within the American Bar Association's Justice Center.
