Webinars & Judicial Education Hours

The Rules of Judicial Education allow Justices of the Peace to receive up to four hours out of the required 20 hours of education each year by electronic means, including webinars.

Beginning in September 2017, Justices of the Peace will also be able to watch archived webinars for credit. TJCTC will add up to four hours of archived webinars to Judges' transcripts. For the archived webinar form, click here.

Webinars cannot count for civil hours. Also, new Judges cannot use webinars toward their 80 hour requirement. However, they can attend as many webinars as they would like for additional hours.
