Court governance refers to the policies, procedures, and traditions that determine how courts are administered, how court administration decisions are made, and who has decision-making authority. Effective court governance is the foundation for ensuring that courts function in a predictable and consistent manner that supports fundamental principles, such as access to justice and due process of law. A court governance structure should provide guidance to court managers and supervisors about how policies and practices are decided and implemented. The purpose of the Modern Court Governance course is to provide court leaders with tools they can use to preserve and enhance governance mechanisms used by the court.
