“The Judicial Administration Fellowship Program is a well-rounded experience that provides dynamic career preparation in analysis, management, and administration. Fellows gain the opportunity to interact with judges, attorneys, community leaders, analysts, court administrators, and academicians—all of whom provide insight on factors affecting the administration of justice.  Academic seminars explain the theoretical implications of organizational and political influences, and corresponding practical experiences reveal the many ways court staff approach them. By illuminating the intersection of policy, law, and civil service, this fellowship serves as a wonderful platform for any professional seeking to gain skills necessary for a career in the public sector. The fellowship provided me with the chance to refine professional skills and expertise in applied economics, while also revealing that justice depends on much more than codified law. I am grateful and honored to have served a term as a Judicial Administration Fellow, and will continue to apply the lessons from the experience in the development of my career in economic policy research.”

~ Jennifer Elaine Cryer, JAF 2011-2012

“The Judicial Administration Fellowship was the perfect blend of practice and theory.  The class and the placement reinforce each other in a way that makes them each more meaningful than they would be on their own.  I was afforded the opportunity to work directly with court administrators and judges on policy issues of county and state-wide importance, while at the same time learning about what it means to be a professional in public service.  For anyone who is passionate about the administration of fair and accessible justice, this fellowship is the perfect way to start or further your career.”

~ Ben Grainger, JAF 2011-12
