Through a grant from the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC), the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) is bringing its workshop entitled “Enhancing Judicial Skills in Domestic Violence Cases Workshop for the State of Georgia” to metro Atlanta in October of 2017.  Specifically, the training will take place from Sunday, October 22, 2017 (beginning at noon) and will continue through Wednesday, October 25, 2017 (ending at noon), at Mansour Center in Marietta.

The Judicial Council/Administrative Office of the Courts and Georgia Commission on Family Violence will be sponsoring the training.  The class size is limited to 50 judges, one judge from each of Georgia’s judicial circuits. The registration website is set up so that one judge from each circuit may sign up.  After that, your circuit will show as “sold out,” but the names of any other judges from that circuit who wish to attend will be put on a waitlist.  If we do not have one judge from each circuit sign up, we can then register judges from that list.

There is no fee to attend.  Some meals will be provided by ICJE and the Judicial Council/AOC.  We are still working on the budget, but are hopeful we can at least help defray some travel expenses for judges who are traveling more than 50 miles one way to participate in this important workshop.


A block room rate of $116/night is available at the Double Tree Hotel Atlanta/Marietta by following this link, Hotel Reservations, and entering the group code 600.

Hotel Address: Double Tree Hotel Atlanta/Marietta, 2055 South Park Place, Atlanta, Georgia 30339

The hotel will provide a shuttle to the Mansour Center each day.
