State Judicial Diversity Pilot Program
As an organization dedicated to promoting fair and impartial courts, Justice at Stake believes that diversity on the bench improves the quality of justice and builds faith and confidence in the legitimacy of the courts. From 2005 – 2009, JAS and its partner organizations published research on improving judicial diversity, available here on our website. Now, we are engaged in a five-year state judicial diversity pilot program to implement research recommendations in five states across the country with input, involvement, and leadership from local judges, bar leaders, and the public.
