The Specialized Dockets Section provides technical support to trial courts in analyzing the need for, planning of, and implementation and certification of specialized docket programs.

Certification is granted when the written materials submitted by each court and observations made during the site review demonstrate compliance with the certification standards. Topics that are not expressly set forth in the certification standards are not evaluated.
