Annotation: This report describes the organization and functions of the Federal Judicial Center and its activities and accomplishments during 1993.
Abstract: The Center is the continuing education and research unit for the Federal judicial system and was established by Congress in 1967 as a separate organization within the judicial branch. During fiscal year 1993, it had a budget of $18.6 million and employed 162 people. Its fiscal year 1994 appropriation has been reduced to $18.45 million, but its staffing level remains the same. In 1993, the Center sponsored 34 education and training programs for 2,700 judges, legal staff, and Federal public defenders. More than 20,000 court personnel took part in Center educational programs through seminars, workshops, curriculum package programs, and locally developed programs funded by the Center. The Center is increasingly using curriculum packages, computer-based training, computer bulletin boards, and self-study materials to deliver training directly to the courts. Other activities include research and planning, judicial history activities, and information services. Photographs, tables, and list of advisory committees
