CLEVELAND - The Court is pleased to announce the graduation of Deputy Court Administrator Justin Seeton from the Ohio Court Management Program.
The Court Management Program is a nationally recognized certification program offered by the Supreme Court of Ohio through a partnership with the National Center for State Courts Institute for Court Management. The program addresses the specific training needs of court leaders in trial and appellate courts.
After a selective admission process and as part of the Class of 2020, Seeton earned the credential of Certified Court Manager after successful completing a rigorous three-year training program including such fundamentals as the purposes and responsibilities of courts, case flow management, and court measurement and performance standards. “The program aims to provide practical skills in court administration,” Seeton said. “The value of the Ohio Court Management Program is immeasurable. It truly is a national resource that helps bring perspective to the issues and challenges we as court leaders face through thought provoking and meaningful discussion. The broad scope of experience and expertise you are surrounded with is so motivating because everyone is willing to help and encourage one another. It feels like you are part of a team! I feel very fortunate to have met some truly amazing people and have formed great friendships along the way that I will rely on throughout my career.”
Seeton joins an exclusive group of court professionals in Ohio who have earned the CCM credential since the program commenced in 2002. Ohio is one of only a few states to offer the training locally for court professionals.
Seeton began his career with the Cuyahoga Domestic Relations Court in 2012 and became Deputy Court Administrator in 2018. Prior to his employment with the Court, Justin was employed by the Cleveland Municipal Housing Court.
