Year-Round School for Ohio’s Judges

While the new school year is starting for children around Ohio, the Ohio Judicial College is busy with year-round education offerings for the state’s judges and other court personnel.

Each calendar year, nearly 200 days of education are offered on a variety of topics such as jury trial skills, management of case flow, traffic and other cases. Emerging topics include human trafficking, undocumented juveniles, and ways to ensure access to the courts. Courses are available online and in the classroom, and are developed with the assistance of judges and court personnel from across the state.

“Planning has already started on courses for next year,” Ohio Judicial College Manager Christy Tull said. “We will be growing our online course offerings and improving the instructional design of all our courses.”

Judges are required to earn 40 hours of continuing legal education, including ten hours of instruction through courses offered by the Judicial College, every two years. The Judicial College was created in 1976 to provide educational programs and activities for Ohio judges. Today, programs include magistrates and non-judicial court personnel.
