The Chief Justice issued Administrative Order AOSC12-28 on July 2, 2012, relating to the Standing Committee on Fairness and Diversity. The committee was established to help advance the State Courts System’s efforts to eliminate from court operations bias that is based on race, gender, ethnicity, age, disability, financial status, or any characteristic that is without legal relevance.
Following are previous Florida committee reports, previous Florida Bar studies and national studies and articles on the subject of fairness and diversity.
