The Publications Unit supports continuing judicial branch education through the development and production of publications and other self-learning resources for judges and court personnel. Among the publications are online benchguides, monographs, and legal summaries (e.g., the Judicial Ethics Benchguide, An Aid to Understanding Canon 7, the Domestic Violence Case Law Summaries, the Pandemic Influenza Benchguide, and the Florida Traffic-Related Appellate Opinion Summaries). Recently, the unit has also begun to design and develop distance learning programs for court personnel.
The Publications Unit also produces two administrative publications: the State Courts System’s Annual Report serves to educate the public about the judicial branch and to enhance communication between the courts and other justice system entities, the legislature, and the executive branch; and the Full Court Press newsletter is designed to share information about local and statewide court-based initiatives and programs and to promote communication among Florida’s state courts.
