Florida-Supreme-Court-SealChief Justice Charles Canady issued a new administrative order April 29 suspending a requirement that state court judges must earn most of their continuing judicial education credits at in-person training events.

The suspension will remain in effect until further order. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, many regular judicial education programs have been canceled in the coming months and travel restrictions have been imposed on judges and court-system staff.

Chief Justice Canady will review this and other COVID-19 orders as the pandemic emergency continues. Statewide and local emergency orders and advisories are linked on the Florida Supreme Court’s website:
