Overview

The County Court Assistants Training Conference gives the county judge's staff the opportunity to learn more about the management and operation of the judicial and administrative procedures of the judge's office. Our goal is for each person to leave this conference better equipped to assist the county judge in his or her judicial and administrative duties.
