Excerpt
Foreword: This Nation?s trial courts face an extraordinary challenge as we near the beginning of a new century. They must meet the needs of America?s increasingly diverse people with justice systems that in too many instances have become inefficient, unaccountable, and unresponsive to the individuals they serve. The reasons for this are familiar to observers of many institutions in modern society: trial courts are overburdened and lack the means and resources to implement a process of self-evaluation and improvement based on universally accepted performance standards. Developing a common language for describing, classifying, and measuring the performance of trial courts was the goal of an 8-year effort, the Trial Court Performance Standards Project, initiated in 1987 by the National Center for State Courts and the Bureau of Justice Assistance. The Trial Courts Performance Standards and Measurement System is the result of that effort.
