IACA’s First Survey to Measure Worldwide Judiciary Response to COVID-19 Pandemic

 IACA, in partnership with the Federal District Court from São Paulo, Brazil, has just launched its first global survey about measures taken by the judiciaries in times of social isolation. Divided in 13 topics, the survey results will reveal different ways judiciaries are facing this challenge. After collecting the responses, IACA and the Brazilian Federal District Court will analyze and consolidate the results and publicize the best practices as suggestions to be adopted in courts around the world. We ask all our members to respond to the survey by the June 15 deadline to participate in this service of public interest.


 (The survey was sent to IACA’s full email list.  This is a good reminder to keep your contact information current.)

Welcome to the International Association for Court Administration (IACA) website.


IACA was created in 2004 by court system executives and managers. Its founding principles envision a global association of professionals collectively engaged in promoting the effective administration of justice.  We do so by endeavoring to build and sustain well-managed, independently governed, effectively administered, and publicly accessible court systems.  IACA’s global governance framework is directed by a president and president-elect who are assisted by an Executive Board comprising vice-presidents who oversee its activities in geographically defined regions of the world and other executive officers.  IACA also has an Advisory Council comprising senior-level justice-sector leaders.  Our programs and services include international and regional conferences which attract professionals from throughout the world, publication each year of two issues of the International Journal on Court Administration, maintenance of technical resource/research database, and newsletter, some of which are available only to current members.  We provide opportunity for court and justice system professionals to network, build relationships, engage in professional development activities, and otherwise contribute to fostering court excellence, access to justice, and optimal public service.  We also promote and support through a special membership category the development of national and regional associations of judges and court employees who join together to collectively improve how their courts are managed and administered and to lobby for the resources to do so.

We welcome your interest in IACA and urge you to consider joining us through one of our categories of membership and participating in our conferences.  We also encourage all current and future members to actively involve themselves in IACA’s future development and expansion through taking on leadership roles at the regional and national levels.  We are a dynamic organization and perpetually interested in ideas and suggestions as to how we might improve and expand the services we provide.
