AJS State Chapters-A Citizen Perspective


Cazimero, Momi, Judicature


The alliance between AJS state chapters and the national organization is enhanced when they work toward the common goals of improving the delivery of justice and engaging in meaningful community outreach. The Hawaii State Chapter has made significant strides toward these goals since its formation in the late 1990s.

In Hawaii, community leaders have joined with representatives of the bar, the bench, and academia to address a range of issues that impact the state's justice system. The chapter has formed more than a dozen special committees and task forces to study and make recommendations on topics such as judicial selection and retention, the jury system, and alternative dispute resolution. Upon the completion of deliberations, committees issue comprehensive reports with recommendations that are made available to the public, legislators, and administrators of the court. By addressing issues in a judicious manner, the Hawaii chapter earns visibility and relevance in the community.

All committees of the Hawaii State Chapter include lawyers, judges, and non-lawyers. Community involvement provides important inclusiveness and characterizes the membership of the American Judicature Society.
