You and the Courts of Kansas - Historical Context

Kansans care about their courts and the continuing improvements we make to our court system reflect that interest.

Kansans expressed their concern and interest in the court system through the Judicial Department Reform Act of 1965. Kansans again spoke when, in 1972, they resoundingly voted yes to adopt a new Judicial Article, opening the way for a broad range of improvements in the courts at local and appellate levels.

The courts, the Legislature, the legal profession and constituent groups work together to make changes happen. These combined forces continue the process today and it is through these efforts that Kansas has a judicial system worthy of the fullest confidence of all her people.
