The Ninth Judicial Circuit Historical Society (NJCHS) was founded in 1985. Its mission is to preserve and promote the vibrant history of the law in the Ninth Circuit, and to raise awareness of the important role that the judicial system plays in our society.
Our organization takes its name from the U.S. Courts for the Ninth Circuit, the court circuit that adjudicates federal law in nine western states and the Pacific Islands--Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, the Northern Mariana Islands, and Guam.
Governed by a Board of Directors, the NJCHS serves over 2,000 members, the legal profession, historians, court personnel, school children, and the general public. Programs and activities include:
