Much has been written of "the crisis in our courts." Countless books, articles, and editorials have cited such factors as the long delays encountered while awaiting trial, the high incidence of repeat offenders, and soaring court costs as some of the reasons why our courts need to change. The courts themselves have recognized the importance of reorganization and reform, and many are rethinking some of the heretofore commonly accepted tenets of judicial administration and procedure. In exhaustive surveys of individual state and local court systems, and in a series of analyses of specific topics, courts have examined the problems confronting them and have proposed a wide range of innovative solutions. Collected and published in Court Studies, these state analyses and studies analyze specific topics in virtually every area of concern to our judicial systems, such as caseload management, plea bargaining, jury selection, sentencing disparities, traffic courts, juvenile and family courts, small claims courts, criminal courts, the appellate process, and much more.
