The Community Relations Committee works on issues relating to the public image of courts and the relationship between courts and the media. Committee projects have included production of a public service video, formation of the Media/Judicial Advisory Group, and formation of a “fire brigade” concept for 1st Amendment issues between courts and the media. This committee meets quarterly.




Judges Speakers Bureau

The Speakers Bureau is intended to connect schools with volunteer judges to speak about courts and the law and promote an understanding of the purpose and structure of Indiana's judicial system. The following is a directory of judicial officers willing to speak to K-12 classrooms in their respective counties. Teachers may contact a listed judge by either telephone or email. For more information on the Judges Speakers Bureau, please contact Jennifer Bauer.
