NCSC & Measures for Justice Seek to Standardize State and Local Court Data

On June 26th, 2018, The National Center for State Courts (NCSC) announced a partnership with Measures for Justice – a non-partisan nonprofit with a mission to bring transparency to local criminal justice systems – to work towards creating an extensive set of standards for state and local court data. Called the “National Court Open Data Standards Project”, it is meant to “facilitate and accelerate safe access to county-level court data.”

Tom Clarke, Vice President of Research & Technology at NCSC stated:

The data standards will enable courts to more easily provide available data to the public.  It will also facilitate the ability of the courts to better manage themselves using their data.  Finally, standards will help courts play a more coordinated role within their criminal justice systems.

The initiative will gather an advisory group of experts both from within and without the courts and legal industry to develop the new data and technology standards to eventually be published by the NCSC as best practices within the courts.
