Judicature

Welcome!

Throughout its history, AJS has worked closely with national, state and local bar associations and other organizations to develop and implement justice system reforms.

 

AJS’s diverse and broadly based membership, including judges, lawyers, and members of the public, promotes fair and impartial courts through research, publications, education, and advocacy for judicial reform.

 

The work of AJS focuses primarily on judicial ethics, judicial selection, access to justice, criminal justice reform, and the jury system.

The American Judicature Society is an independent, non-partisan, membership organization working nationally to protect the integrity of the American justice system.
