The Center for Judicial Studies gratefully acknowledges the financial support of its sponsors.  The Center’s law-reform conferences, research, international judicial training, and other judiciary-related programs rely heavily on the generosity of sponsors and alumni donations.

All Center-related sponsorship fees, conference registration fees, and donations are collected in the Judicial Studies Fund, which is used to defray the Center’s expenses, except for the Center’s Master of Judicial Studies LLM program for state, federal, and international judges.  Funding of the LLM program is derived exclusively from an endowment generously provided by The Duke Endowment and from donations from Duke Law alumni.
