Community-Focused Court Planning Project

The purpose of the Judicial Council's ongoing Community-Focused Court Planning initiative is to create a forum for local communities to provide their perspectives and input for inclusion in Judicial Council as well as local trial court short-and-long-term strategic planning efforts. Allowing the public to participate in this process helps the courts consider the public's needs and perceptions while simultaneously ensuring that a strong and effective partnership is developed between court leaders and court stakeholders.

The AOC seeks a consultant with expertise in community outreach and group meeting facilitation to: (1) design and implement a court staff user's guide for conducting court and community outreach forums, and (2) design and conduct three regional, one-day, training workshops with trial court representatives, the purpose of which is to prepare them for conducting community focused planning meetings in their respective jurisdictions. Court-community forums are to be structured on the key findings of the previously referenced survey, Trust and Confidence in the California Courts; A Survey of the Public and Attorneys, 2005.
