They are completely separate entities with their own administration, funding sources, mission, vision, faculty/staff, etc. The Judicial Studies Program lives within the University, which grants the MJS/Ph.D. degrees and is operated by University faculty/staff. The National Judicial College (NJC) is a not-for-profit organization that is headquartered on the University campus and typically focuses on educational opportunities for judges hearing criminal and civil cases. Until recently, the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) was also headquartered on campus, but relocated to downtown Reno for additional space. The NCJFCJ is also a not-for-profit and focuses on training, technical assistance, research and policy development in the area of juvenile and family law (e.g., dependency, juvenile justice, domestic violence, etc.). Both the NJC and NCJFCJ are affiliates of the University and are instrumental partners and collaborators with the University in the areas of judicial education and justice research. Together, the presence of these three unique but allied institutions in one locale contribute to the University/Northern Nevada being considered by many to be the judicial education epicenter of the nation.
