What training or experience has prepared you to do this job? In what areas do you expect to need additional training or education?
I believe the description of my education, training and experience as noted in items (a) and (d) above qualify me for the position of justice of the peace. In addition, as an attorney I am required to attend at least 15 hours of continuing education each year. As a board-certified trial attorney, I must apply for recertification every five years and meet practice, peer review and continuing education requirements.
Nonetheless, I intend to supplement and continually improve my qualifications by: (1) seeking input from current and former JP Judges about recommendations; (2) observing and incorporating the best practices of other JP courts; and (3) identifying and scheduling a comprehensive series of continuing education courses throughout my term as justice of the peace.
