High Quality Courts If we want to improve the quality of our courts, we must ensure independent, capable judges are appointed and retained. To attract such high-qualified jurists, the selection of New Jersey’s judges must be timely and transparent, their compensation just, and their workload reasonable.

New Jersey must also continue to modernize its court system. E-filing should be an option in all cases, and experiments like the Complex Business Litigation Program (CBLP) should be applauded, and if successful, expanded.
