Burlington Vicinage Trial Court Administrator Jude Del Preore Joins Warren E. Burger Society
Jude Del Preore, trial court administrator for the Burlington Vicinage of New Jersey Superior Court, will be inducted into the Warren E. Burger Society of the National Center for State Courts (NCSC) on Friday, Nov. 18 during the annual NCSC recognition luncheon in Washington, DC.
Membership in the Warren E. Burger Society honors individuals who have demonstrated an exemplary commitment to improving the administration of justice through their contributions of service or support to the NCSC. The society is named for the former chief justice of the United States who helped found the National Center in 1971.
“We are delighted by the committee’s decision to induct Jude into the Warren E. Burger Society,” said Chief Justice Stuart Rabner. “His contributions to the New Jersey Judiciary, as well as to other state courts through his service to regional and national organizations, exemplify the spirit of dedication to the cause of justice the Society fosters.”
Del Preore has served the New Jersey Judiciary for nearly four decades and has held the position of trial court administrator, first in the Mercer Vicinage, and then in the Burlington Vicinage, since 1997. In addition to his service to the Judiciary, Del Preore has actively contributed to the advancement of the nation’s courts through his work with the Mid-Atlantic Association for Court Management (MAACM) and, most recently, the National Association for Court Management (NACM). He is the immediate past president of NACM and recently served as that organization’s liaison to the American Bar Association Task Force on Preservation of the Justice System.
Del Preore holds a bachelor’s degree from Rutgers University and a master’s degree from Kean University. He is a fellow of the NCSC’s Institute for Court Management.
The National Center for State Courts, headquartered in Williamsburg, Va., is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the administration of justice by providing leadership and service to the state courts. Founded in 1971 by the Conference of Chief Justices and Chief Justice Burger, the NCSC provides education, training, technology, management, and research services to state courts.
Burger Society inductees are selected by a committee. Each inductee receives a limited edition print of the portrait of the late Chief Justice Burger, which is signed and numbered by the artist, Fran Di Giacomo.
Del Preore lives in Moorestown with his wife and two sons.
