Judiciary Education

Continuing judicial education is mandatory in Florida, by court rule.

To help judges satisfy this educational requirement, Florida Judiciary Education currently presents a variety of educational programs for new judges, experienced judges, and some court staff.  About 900 hours of instruction are offered each year through live presentations and distance learning formats. This education helps judges and staff to enhance their legal knowledge, administrative skills and ethical standards, with the resulting public benefit of competent and fair administration of justice.
