Is Public Trust and Confidence in Our Court System Declining?
One of the hallmark cornerstones of our system based on the rule of law is a fair and impartial judiciary. Is public trust in this American institution declining? How can we measure and quantify this decline and how can we ensure that such a decline does not erode this crucial branch of government? Our panelists will discuss various data regarding the public’s feelings about the current court system and provide examples of programs that are helping to enhance the relationship between the courts and the communities they serve.
