Administration of Justice
The Association has a mandate to improve the administration of justice in Canada. In concert with the Canadian Judicial Council , the Association organizes conferences, seminars and educational and other programs to examine justice-related issues and improvements to the justice system. CSCJA members serve on Canadian Judicial Council committees that explore ways to improve the structure and administration of the courts, help self-represented litigants, and inform the public about the work of the courts. Other committees are looking into the impact of technological change and drafting consistent, plain-language instructions for judges to use when explaining the law to jurors.
CSCJA members are active in the Canadian Institute for the Administration of Justice , the International Association of Judges and other organizations dedicated to improving how justice is administered. They also play an active role in the Canadian Bar Association's Canadian Judges' Forum , which gives judges a voice in proposals to improve the administration of justice.
