What does a Court Analyst do?

An interest in the legal process and finding flaws makes you the perfect candidate for a Court Analyst position. Responsible for sifting through court procedures with a fine-tooth comb, a Court Analyst finds ways to improve the efficiency of the court.

If people always tell you that you “just like to find flaws,” then the job of Court Analyst is the one for you. Your keen eye for imperfection is put to the test as you observe court practices and policies, then make recommendations on how to fix them. For example, if Suzy at the customer service counter enters information by hand, then Phil in administration reenters the same information into the computer, this is an area for improvement. You step in and suggest that Suzy enter the information directly into the computer, which eliminates the redundancy and solves the problem.

Flaw finding doesn’t stop there, as you also find ways to save money. Court systems are funded with government money, and eliminating wasteful government spending isn’t just a catchphrase for Congress. You analyze budget expenditures to identify ways to reduce costs while keeping customer service or the judicial process flowing smoothly.

Prepare your eyes for countless hours of research as you pore through data and statistics related to operational procedures and expenditures. The information you gather is used to support efficiency recommendations made to Court Administrators.

Writing and presentation skills are a must as well to compile your recommendations and supporting evidence. Your reports are critical as a summary of your findings, and should reflect your expertise.

If you want to work in the legal field without the student loan debt of most Attorneys, this is the perfect way to put your critical mind to work in the courts.
