AJEI honored for excellence in judicial education

The American Bar Association’s Judicial Division National Conference of Specialized Court Judges (NCSCJ) named the Appellate Judges Education Institute (AJEI) as the recipient of the 2017 Judicial Education Award. The award recognizes AJEI’s successful efforts in providing high-quality judicial education and training to judges through its annual summit.

The award was presented during the NCSCJ dinner and awards program Aug. 11, 2017, as part of the ABA’s annual meeting in New York.
