About the Judicial Institute

A board of trustees consisting of judges, legislators, law professors, and practicing attorneys govern the New York State Judicial Institute. The Judicial Institute is operated by New York State Unified Court System personnel. The three-story-state-of-the-art-facility of 30,000 square feet features a 160-seat auditorium, a multi-use lecture hall, three classrooms, two conference rooms, and a business center.

The Institute provides a forum for identification of new and emerging legal, technological, social, criminal, and administrative trends affecting the courts; continuing education through courses, seminars, and conferences; advanced study of how interdisciplinary influences, such as technology, medicine, ethics, and social sciences, affect the law and the judicial process; and participation in cooperative education programs involving other branches of government, as well as other state and federal judicial systems.

As of spring of 2009 Hon. Juanita Bing Newton serves as dean of the Institute; succeeding the Institute's founding dean Hon. Robert G. M. Keating.
