The Bolch Judicial Institute offers several platforms for scholars, judges, and practitioners to exchange ideas for advancing the rule of law and improving justice systems around the world. Our flagship publication, Judicature, is a scholarly journal published three times a year for nearly 6,000 U.S. federal and state judges.

In this repository, we maintain scholarly articles, reports, and our guidelines and best practices documents that reflect the scholarship and expertise of prominent bench leaders, legal practitioners, and academics. For more information about these resources, contact us at
