A half day each month, the Superior Courts and Judicial Bureau close for training. Our managers and staff use this time to receive instruction on operational procedures. They also learn about new laws and rules, and the use of new technologies. This provides an opportunity for Judiciary employees to stay informed and improve their skills. Most important, it allows them to better serve our communities.

See the schedule below for the days and times of closure. Closings are staggered to provide emergency access to neighboring courthouses.
