The Michigan Judicial Institute (MJI) was created by the Michigan Supreme Court in 1977 to provide judges and court personnel with an opportunity to develop and enhance their professional skills. MJI is the training division of the State Court Administrative Office.
MJI offers seminars, publications, and distance learning opportunities that are designed to meet the changing professional needs of those responsible for the administration of justice in Michigan. These efforts have a further purpose—to assure the public that those entrusted to provide judicial services possess and maintain the highest level of professional competence.
MJI also provides oversight and support for the Michigan Supreme Court Learning Center.
