Thirty-four magistrates attended a five day intensive training seminar at Trident Technical College in Charleston from May 5-9, 2003.  In addition, five municipal judges participated in the one day training on criminal law on Wednesday. Court Administration in conjunction with the Magistrates Advisory Council developed this training seminar as provided in the Magistrates Reform Act.  Chief Justice Jean Toal noted in her remarks to the group that this is an historical occasion, since it marks the first intensive training for magistrates since the Reform Act has become law.  Court Administration will continue this training with one day training sessions over the next several months.  Summary court judges interested in pursuing this training are encouraged to contact Court Administration for further information.
