Discretion and Decision-Making in the Courts

    This course is sponsored by North Carolina Judicial College.

    This two-day Judicial College seminar will examine common decisions clerks make that are entrusted to their discretion. Case studies and seminar discussions about those cases will be used to illustrate factors that contribute to judicial decisions, and to give participants a chance to learn how their colleagues handle similar situations. Discussion of recent research findings about how judicial officials and others make decisions will be included.
