The attorney works closely with judicial officers to design, develop and deliver mandatory and recommended continuing education to judicial officers. The attorney regularly monitors and analyzes rules of court, statutes, and case law to maintain competency in the areas of law that are directly and indirectly critical and relevant to the assignment.

As part of the development and delivery of the educational content, the attorney assists the judicial faculty in setting course learning objectives and creating lesson plans, course outlines, hypothetical case scenarios, PowerPoint presentations, and participant materials based on the most current law.
