The NCSC, headquartered in Williamsburg, Va., is a nonprofit court reform organization dedicated to improving the administration of justice by providing leadership and service to the state courts. The National Center, founded in 1971 by the Conference of Chief Justices and Chief Justice of the United States Warren E. Burger, provides education, training, technology, management and research services to the nation's state courts.
The NCSC also is taking the lead on several key issues facing the justice system, including the establishment of a major civil justice initiative - a multiyear project that is examining best practices in civil case management and how complex litigation procedures can be improved. Other national initiatives driven by the NCSC include judicial selection reform and increasing citizen participation in jury service.
