Key Issues | Promising Approaches | Network Seminars

The Rural Courts Improvement Network is an initiative of The Justice Management Institute (JMI) and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), U.S. Department of Justice that began in early 2008. The goal of the initiative is to strengthen the ability of state court systems and rural court leaders to improve court operations in rural areas by emphasizing the sharing of information and ideas about promising approaches and practices, and fostering peer-to-peer learning among court system leaders at the state and local levels.
