Performance Measures for Civil Justice

With generous support by the State Justice Institute, the National Center for State Courts and IAALS are partnering on a three-year project to implement the CJI Recommendations. The CJI Implementation Plan is a multipronged effort that includes assistance in strategic planning for state judicial leadership, education and technical assistance for state and local courts, evaluation of demonstration pilot projects to document the impact of best practices, and the development of practical tools and instructions on effective implementation efforts.

The CJI Performance Measures for Civil Justice document provides a description of common metrics and methods for assessing the effectiveness of existing and newly implemented civil justice rules and business practices.
