In the fall of 2006, the Texas Justice Court Judges Association (JCJA) formed an honorary society for Texas justices of the peace who desire advanced education and who should be recognized for that endeavor.
This society is known as the College of Justice Court Judges and will recognize each year those justice court judges who receive at least (10) hours of accredited education above their mandatory certification requirements. These judges are among the best educated and knowledgeable justices of the peace in the state and will be awarded diplomas suitable for framing in acknowledgment of their endeavors.
Special recognition as a “Distinguished Member” is given those member judges who acquire thirty (30) hours or more above their mandatory requirements.
Those Judges who acquire at least sixty (60) hours above their mandatory requirements are our “Scholar Members” and receive a one-year complimentary membership, for the judge of their choice, into the Texas Justice Court Judges Association.
We’ve had an overwhelming response to the College for the last six years and have proudly awarded over 647 diplomas to judges from all over the state.
