FRANKFORT – District Court Judge Jill Clark, who represents Caldwell, Livingston, Lyon and Trigg counties, participated in the 2013 District Judges Fall College that took place Nov. 4-6 in Lexington. The Administrative Office of the Courts provided the judicial education program for the state’s district judges.

The District Court judges attended courses about Veterans Treatment Courts, juvenile justice, human trafficking, cybercrime, substance abuse, court technology, and court interpreting for individuals who are deaf or non-English-speaking.

The judges also heard from Chief Justice of Kentucky John D. Minton, Jr., about trends in the state court system.

“Much about how the courts operate is different from when I took the bench 15 years ago,” said District Court Judge Donald E. Armstrong Jr., who was elected president of the Kentucky District Judges Association at the college. “Changing demographics, the budget crisis and new technology are affecting how judges carry out our work. It’s important for us to adapt to better serve the public and the legal community.”
