Core Values of the New Jersey Court System

Core Values of the New Jersey Court System

Required to accomplish our mission are four paramount values representing the core of what we stand for as an organization:

  • Independence
  • Fairness
  • Integrity
  • Quality Service

The Report of the Judiciary Strategic Planning Committee, approved by the Supreme Court in December 1998, provides as follows:

“The Judiciary should take appropriate steps to ensure that all court users – litigants, witnesses, volunteers, attorneys, or others – are treated with civility, dignity, respect and without discrimination.”
