Third Annual Social Media and Courts Survey

The NCSC announced the third annual social media and the courts survey.

Dear Judicial System Colleague:

With camera phones in the courtroom, jurors tweeting, and judges on Facebook, the new media environment has major implications for the administration of justice. In partnership with the Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University and the National Center for State Courts, the Conference of CourtPublic Information Officers is seeking the input of state judicial system court professionals across the country for its third annual survey examining new media and the courts.

You can contribute to this important research by taking a moment to participate by clicking here. The survey takes about 10-15 minutes to complete. The data will be compiled with the previous two year's survey results into a report providing an ongoing framework for courts to use when deciding the appropriate use of new media.

There will be no tracking or monitoring to relate responses to specific individuals. All demographic information will be collected as aggregate data only. The results will be announced at the annual meeting in St. Petersburg and will be posted at

Thank you for valuable time. We look forward to your participation.
The survey will close on June 27, 2012.
