The Nebraska Court Improvement Project is shepherded by the Supreme Court’s Commission on Children in the Courts whose original goal was to begin a study of appropriate steps for the judicial system to undertake to insure that the court system is as responsive as possible for children who interact with, or are directly affected by, the courts. The Commission meets quarterly to review the responsiveness of the court system in this area. It is also tasked with investigating system concerns, researching more effective and efficient approaches to these cases, and making recommendations for change to the Supreme Court when warranted.
Programming is guided by the Supreme Court’s Commission on Children in the Courts with project development and information from the Center for Children, Families and the Law.
