The challenges courts face continue to upend society. NACM will address these challenges and Fulfilling the Promise of Justice in America through its two 2023 conferences. The 2023 Midyear Conference will be entitled: Preserving the CORE: It’s All About Justice.
The global pandemic and its variants have significantly disrupted nearly every aspect of American life, but courts have been particularly impacted. By their nature, courts bring people together on neutral ground to resolve disputes. Indeed, justice is a human endeavor that relies on human interaction.
While not exactly easy, pandemic adjustments to court processes have been mostly technical. But adaptive challenges unrelated to the pandemic have also emerged with the potential to threaten the rule of law.
Troubling instances of disproportional force used by law enforcement – some deadly and many captured on video – have reinvigorated public demonstrations to address racial bias in our justice system.
Hyper-partisanship precipitated unsuccessful attempts in court to challenge election results. The rule of law was violently defied by a mob that attempted to disrupt the certification of electoral votes by force.
Court professionals must recognize that normal was never good enough. We cannot go back, so instead we must forge a better future while maintaining Justice at the Core of our fundamental purpose. The Midyear will study this important theme and efforts across this nation to sustain justice.
