Court calls on lawyers to help the judicial branch plan for the future

Top Stories

Online SurveyFlorida Bar members are being asked to complete a survey to help the Supreme Court as it plans for the future.

The court has charged the Judicial Management Council with developing and updating the long-range strategic plan for the judicial branch. The strategic plan will articulate the major issues facing the court system over the next six years and outline priority goals to address those issues.

As part of that effort, the Judicial Management Council is seeking comments on the court system from judicial officers and staff, clerks of court, attorneys, justice system partners, and the public so that it may identify issues and trends from multiple perspectives.

“Florida’s attorneys are vital to court operations and have a unique vantage point from which to reflect on needs and concerns relating to the courts,” Chief Justice Charles Canady wrote to Bar President Dori Foster-Morales asking for the Bar’s assistance in publicizing the effort.

The survey is accessible online through May 21. The court said the responses to the survey are anonymous.
