A former California state judge from 2009 to 2013, Paul Seeman concurrently served on multiple committees, task forces, and other legal initiatives and organizations. He also chaired the Alameda County Collaborative Juvenile Court and vice-chaired the Juvenile Law Education Committee for the California Center for Judicial Education and Research (CJER).
The CJER is dedicated to educating and training for judges, justices, commissioners, referees, managers, supervisors, and other executive officers and staff members within the California state court system. Since 2008, the CJER has partnered with the National Center for State Courts’ Institute for Court Management (ICM) to create the Court Management Program (CMP). The CMP provides national educational courses within six different U.S. states, and it’s broken up into the levels of Certified Court Manager and Certified Court Executive. Each of these levels require practitioners to complete six courses that are designed to meet the standards of the National Association for Court Management.
