STATEMENT OF CORE VALUES…..

IMPORTANT PRINCIPLES of the NEW JERSEY COURT SYSTEM

1) Independence

Judicial independence permits judges to make rulings that may be unpopular, even though the judges consider them correct and fair.

2) Integrity

Open proceedings allow the public to see that the Judiciary system works and is fair. The people must have trust and confidence in the legal system. This is why most court proceedings, including trials, are open to the public.

3) Fairness

For our courts to be fair, judges must be impartial- that is, they may not favor either side in a case. The goal of our courts is to provide equal treatment to all people, regardless of their wealth, position, race, gender, religion, ethnic background, language, physical abilities, marital status or, affectional or sexual orientation.

4) Quality Service

To provide equal treatment to all people, regardless of their wealth, position, race, gender, religion, ethnic background or physical abilities.
