Judge completes judicial course

District Judge Tod Young completed a two-week course at the National Judicial College in Reno on general jurisdiction.

Participants were immersed in the core competencies of their profession with an emphasis on courtroom and case management; effective jury and nonjury trial procedures; summary and application of developments in criminal law and procedure, family law, judicial discretion, judicial ethics and sentencing; ruling on evidence more confidently; fair and unbiased decisions; and interaction with the media.

“I found the course to be a very valuable source of information,” Young said. “Judicial economy and access to justice are issues of great concern to me and I know that they are to citizens throughout my district. This course provided great information on those issues and so many others.”

The course was Sept. 29-Oct. 10 at the college.

The National Judicial College was founded in 1963, and is the nation’s leading provider of judicial education. The NJC is housed in a state-of-the-art building on the 255-acre campus of the University of Nevada, Reno. For 50 years, the NJC has been offering courses to improve judicial productivity, challenge current perceptions of justice and inspire judges to achieve judicial excellence.

The NJC is also home to the National Tribal Judicial Center and an international program.
