  • Print

Lilia G. Judson, executive director of the Indiana Supreme Court Division of State Court Administration, has been elected
vice-chair of the Board of Directors of the National Center for State Courts (NCSC). She also has been named president of
the Conference of State Court Administrators (COSCA), a national organization that represents the top chief executives of
the courts of the 50 states and the U.S. territories, and of which NCSC serves as executive staff. Both positions are one-year

“For more than 30 years, Lilly Judson has worked tirelessly to improve the justice system,” said Mary C. McQueen,
NCSC president. “Her commitment to the rule of law and the basic principles of justice and her fervent belief in equal
access to justice for everyone has served as an example to her peers across the country, as evidenced by the trust placed
in her to lead NCSC and COSCA.”

As the manager of Indiana’s judicial system for 13 years, Judson has overseen programs designed to promote the more
efficient administration of justice and increase access to justice for the residents of Indiana. Her office has administrative
responsibility over the state’s trial courts, collects data on court volume and workload, and distributes state funding
for court operations and programs. Judson also manages the staff of the Indiana Public Defender Commission and Indiana Commission
on Judicial Qualifications, among others, and oversees the $100 million court-system budget. Some of the many accomplishments
of her tenure as executive director include the launch of a statewide case management system, the implementation of technology
training for judges, and the establishment of a court interpreter program.•
