Annotation: Court administrators and judges are recruited from different groups; have different education, socialization processes, training, and professional orientations; and perform different tasks, but no fixed boundaries should exist between their appropriate and distinct responsibilities.
Abstract: Specific tasks should be handled by court administrators, while others that some might wish to assign to court administrators fit more comfortably into the realm of judges. Thus, mobilizing their judicial peers is a task that court administrators should encourage judges to undertake. On the other hand, records management, personnel supervision, and systems development should receive leadership from court administrators. Finally, relationships with other agencies may be an area in which judges and administrators can be usefully and mutually supportive. 12 references
