Bench & Bar Liaison Program

Superior Court adopted a Bench and Bar Liaison Program on June 2, 2011. The Program established two volunteer liaison positions in each county. One liaison will act in civil cases and the other in criminal cases. The liaisons serve at the pleasure of the Court and will act as intermediaries between Superior Court practitioners and the Resident Judge or appointed Liaison Judge for each county.

The liaisons serve as contacts to address issues between practitioners and the Court, continue the efficacious functioning of the Court, and to reinforce the collegiality that is a hallmark of the Delaware Bench and Bar.

Practitioners’ communications with the liaisons are confidential unless the practitioner agrees otherwise. And likewise communications originating from the Court are also confidential among the practitioners involved.
