The Judiciary of Guam is playing host to the 2019 Biennial Conference of the Pacific Judicial Council (PJC).
The four-day agenda will feature discussions in trauma-informed practices in courtrooms, juvenile justice reform and fostering a respectful workplace in the respective island judiciaries.
The Pacific Judicial Council is a regional organization of judicial officers from Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) and the states of Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei, and Yap, American Samoa and the Republic of Palau.
PJC provides educational and training opportunities to the judicial officers, administrators, and employees of the PJC’s member jurisdictions.
Since 1991, the PJC has continued to bring esteemed jurists to the region and has contributed many judicial reform efforts that remain an important part of the collective justice systems.
The council meetings also give court professionals-administrators, attorneys, law enforcement teams and clerks the opportunity to interact with their counterparts in the Pacific to network and exchange information that has benefited the people who are served.
