The National Foundation for Judicial Excellence (NFJE) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to supporting an independent, well-informed judiciary. DRI established the NFJE with the mission of educating state court appellate judges in 2004 under the leadership of then president Richard Boyette.
The NFJE has successfully produced a first-rate annual symposium attracting hundreds of state appellate judges since 2005. The symposia have featured an array of nationally distinguished legal experts and scholars discussing the contemporary and complex legal issues relevant today in courtrooms across the country. The end result is the top quality, tuition-free series of educational programs provided by the NFJE, which assist North Carolina's and our nation’s appellate judges to perform at their highest levels.
