International Judicial Relations
The Center provides information to help improve the administration of justice in other countries and gathers information from abroad that may inform the administration of justice in the United States.
The Center’s International Judicial Relations Office coordinates briefings and short programs for visiting judges and officials, serves as a resource for U.S. judges working with those from other countries, supports rule-of-law assistance projects abroad, and produces informational materials about the federal judicial system. This slideshow highlights some of these programs.
Funding and logistical support for the Center’s international programs comes from other U.S. government agencies, international organizations, or foreign governments and institutions.
Through the Visiting Fellows Program, judges and legal professionals from other countries and jurisdictions are invited to be scholars in residence at the FJC.
