Due to the massive caseloads that appear day-to-day, court systems must run smoothly. As a court liaison it is your responsibility to maintain relationships between all the departments within the court by handling the administrative duties and assisting with witness interviews. A court liaison career involves reviewing legal paperwork for felonies and misdemeanors, updating personal records, and making sure sex-offenders register and comply with all mandated regulations, including fingerprinting and photos. They also oversee the hectic appointment scheduling for court staff members such as judges, district attorneys, and lawyers.
Training for court liaison jobs can begin with a high school diploma or equivalent. Usually an associate’s or bachelor’s in criminal justice is preferred by most courts in order to be considered for employment.
