The International Journal for Court Administration is an initiative of IACA's Executive Board and its diverse membership. The Journal is an effective communications vehicle for the international exchange of experiences, ideas and information on court management, and contributes to improving the administration of justice in all countries. The collective international experience of its Executive Board and Editors has been that every judicial system, even in countries in the earlier stages of transition, has elements that may be of interest to others. The variations in practice and procedure from one region of the world to another, from one court system to another, also reveal major similarities across all systems. IJCA serves as a resource for justice system professionals interested in learning about new and innovative practices in court and justice system administration and management, in common law, continental, and Sharia-based legal systems throughout the world.

The Journal accepts advertising from businesses, organizations, and others relating to court and justice systems by way of services, equipment, conferences, etc.  The Journal also gratefully accepts sponsorships to help cover the administrative costs of producing, editing and formatting individual issues.
