Discussion Leader’s Guide:
Procedural-Fairness Video Scenarios
The National Center for State Courts has prepared four video scenarios that can be viewed and then discussed to supplement training programs on procedural fairness (also called procedural justice) for judges and court staff.

A separate discussion guide for participants is included. It provides an introduction for each scenario and questions to consider as participants watch it. The guide also includes links to further background information regarding each scenario. This Discussion Leader’s Guide provides some suggestions for comments that might be made regarding each scenario. Greater information about procedural fairness in courts can be found at ProceduralFairness.org, a website cohosted by the National Center for State Courts.
