Judicial officers recognized for service, education

Dozens of judicial officers were recognized for their commitment to higher education and their long-time service to the judicial branch during 2012. Chief Justice Brent E. Dickson said, “More than 50 judicial officers were honored this year for their participation in a number of different judicial education programs. I commend these judicial officers for their commitment to ensuring justice for the citizens of Indiana.”

Eighteen judicial officers received an Indiana Judicial College certificate, one judge completed the Indiana Master’s Certificate Program, 30 judicial officers completed the Graduate Program for Judges and eight judicial officers were honored for 24 years of service on the bench. The honors were presented at a 2012 judicial conference.

A judicial officer must complete 120 hours of judicial education presented by the Indiana Judicial Center to receive this certificate. The programs offered are designed for judicial officers to enhance their legal knowledge and improve their personal and professional growth and development.
