The Judicial Branch is committed to supporting and participating in public education programs designed to enhance understanding of the justice system.

The Speakers Bureau maintains a panel of Judges and other court officials interested in speaking to community audiences on a wide range of court-related topics. Additionally, court personnel are available to discuss with community groups how to access the Judicial Branch’s Americans with Disabilities programs and services.

The Speakers Bureau was created to help judges around the state share their areas of expertise with you. The range of topics, which our speakers are available to address, reflect the diversity of the Connecticut Judiciary.
