CJE is dedicated to public education and community outreach about individual rights in the court system.

Since it's founding in 2006, CJE has filled a critical void, shining a light on a vital branch of government that wields tremendous power over the lives of average people. CJE has empowered citizen leadership, inspired government action, and become a major catalyst in building a national movement for family court reform.

Beginning in 2008, CJE made a special commitment to protecting the rights of children and vulnerable populations in the courts. This year, CJE will continue our successful campaign to promote the safety of children in California's family courts... and in courts across the nation.

The system is broken. Together, let's expose it.


If you contact the Center, please be patient as we are a very small staff working to address a national crisis. If you have a family court story to tell, please email the Center at info@centerforjudicialexcellence.org
