Judicial Sabbaticals

Ira P. Robbins
January 1, 1987

Examines the possible use of sabbatical leave for federal judges as a means of improving judges' morale, reducing their job-related stress, and reducing attrition in their ranks. The author sets out the history of sabbaticals in other fields and discusses the value of such leave for those, like judges, in high-stress occupations.
