In addition to managing their regular caseloads, judicial officers in West Virginia also work on many short- and long-term projects with the goal of improving the state justice system. Circuit judges serve on the Mass Litigation Panel, the Business Court Committee, and the Court Improvement Program Board, among others. Circuit judges preside over numerous juvenile and adult treatment courts throughout the state, and dozens of judges are active in civic education programs in public schools, private schools, and colleges and universities. The Supreme Court also has staff and panels working to improve elder law, juvenile justice, and to reduce truancy. The Justices take seriously their responsibility to administer the courts of West Virginia in a way that provides expeditious and fair outcomes to all who seek justice, and to use the power of the judiciary to help the other branches of government provide a safe, stable environment for all citizens, including our elders and our children.
