Published: January, 2015| National Judicial Institute on Domestic Violence

The NJIDV has collaborated with a broad range of professionals, including judges, attorneys, advocates, academics, mental health experts, social scientists, child experts, elder abuse and geriatric medical experts, and community representatives, in designing and delivering programs and projects for the judiciary. Institute education programs focus primarily on enhancing the knowledge and skills of trial court judges and judicial officers (commissioners, referees, etc.). All NJIDV programs use a peer-to-peer education model that involves all participants actively in the learning process. The continuum of education addresses the needs of judges with all levels of experience in domestic violence and elder abuse, and at the various levels of their careers.
