Welcome to Judicature, The Scholarly Journal for Judges.
Judicature is published quarterly (February, May, August and November) by the Duke Law Center for Judicial Studies. The journal contains articles by judges, scholars, and practitioners on topics such as law reform, emerging legal issues, case-management techniques, and other matters that pertain to the daily work of a judge. We also publish empirical research that informs our understanding of the judiciary. Our editorial board is composed of judges who are students in the Duke Law Master's of Judicial Studies program; editors are listed by name in the journal and on each edition's contents page on our website.
Judicature is mailed free of charge to all Article III judges, federal magistrate judges, and state supreme court judges; our subscribers include federal and state judges, lawyers, scholars, students, and others who are interested in learning about the judiciary. Our goal is to create a forum for judges, practitioners, and academics to share ideas, best practices, perspectives, and opinions, and in doing so provide insight into the issues and ideas that are shaping the judiciary and the administration of justice.
