The National Judicial Education Program (NJEP)
The National Judicial Education Program (NJEP) promotes equal treatment for women and men in the courts by developing curricula and conducting trainings to educate judges, lawyers, law professors and law students about the ways gender bias can undermine fairness across the spectrum of civil, criminal, family and juvenile law, and how to prevent it. NJEP’s Understanding Sexual Violence curricula,
videos and DVDs for judges and others explore how rape and sexual abuse
cases can be handled so as to minimize retraumatization of victims without
undermining defendants' constitutional rights. NJEP also leads the national
gender bias task force movement in which high level task forces appointed
by their state supreme courts investigate gender bias in their own jurisdictions
in order to implement reforms. Established in 1980, NJEP is a project of
Legal Momentum in cooperation with the National Association of Women Judges.
