Judges Training

December 13, 2018
9:30 AM - 3:30 PM

Marriott New Orleans
555 Canal Street
New Orleans, LA

This year the Judges workshop will be for judges only, as we are doing it in partnership with the Judicial College, but next year we plan to again open this end-of-year training to all team members. As you can see, this will be a great opportunity for your judge to get some judge-specific specialty court information, so if you have the opportunity, try to encourage your judge(s) to attend. Also, if your judge attends, it will count toward the 5 hours of mandatory Judicial College credit they must receive each year. Please contact Kerry Lentini for further information.

Presented by the Louisiana Supreme Court Drug and Specialty Court Office, in partnership with the Louisiana Judicial College and Louisiana Association of Drug and Specialty Courts Secrets to Specialty Court Success New Orleans Marriot, 555 Canal Street Thursday, December 13, 2018

The Specialty Court Judge is the team leader, and as such has the key role in the success of the team and the participants. Being the leader of a collaborative team of experts in a Specialty Court setting has unique challenges. The role of the Judge will be explored in this session in a new and interactive way. Following this session, Judges will be more informed about how to take on and conquer these challenges.
