The Marion Superior Court has started a new continuing court education program for its employees as part of an ongoing effort to better serve staff and the community. The training was the first in a series of mandatory sessions planned for 2009.

The daylong training in November included a presentation by Indiana Justice Brent E. Dickson about upcoming changes impacting state courts and a session on the nuances between providing legal information and legal advice led by former Rush Circuit Judge Barbara Arnold Harcourt. Harcourt is working with the Supreme Court to develop statewide training.

The first session also touched on various court issues, including new administrative rulings that will impact day-to-day court functions, probation and community work service updates, and stress management and diversity in the courtroom.

Marion Superior Court employees will attend a minimum of six development classes each year; the court will also use Web-based, interactive seminars on court-related topics. The court also plans to expand its orientation program for newly hired employees to allow for more hands-on experience.
