Justice's wife honored for support of judiciary

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

Jan Aikman Dickson, the wife of Indiana Justice Brent E. Dickson, will be inducted into the Warren E. Burger Society Friday. Membership in this society honors those who have shown a commitment to improving the administration of justice through service or support to the National Center for State Courts.

Dickson helped found the Judicial Family Institute, a national nonpartisan organization dedicated to providing information and education to judicial households and extended family members of judges, in 1987 just after her husband was appointed to the Indiana Supreme Court. She saw a need for family members to have access to information about judicial codes of conduct and how to manage life in the public eye.

In 2001, JFI was formally adopted by the Conference of Chief Justices and operates as a committee of that organization. It sponsors educational programs and law and literature sessions for jurists. Its website is a clearinghouse of information on topics such as security, ethics and quality of life for judges and their families.

Dickson also has presented and moderated at conferences sponsored by various judicial and legal organizations.

She will be inducted into the society during the NCSC’s annual recognition luncheon in Washington, D.C.
