Organizers of a new, Virginia-based project want to raise the profile of state supreme courts in the U.S.
The Institute of Bill of Rights Law at the William & Mary law school and the National Center for State Courts, headquartered in Williamsburg, are backing the “State Supreme Court Initiative.”
The project intends to enhance the visibility of state supreme courts and support public education about the work of state supreme courts. In the plans are a website, task forces, and conferences that focus attention on state supreme courts.
