The Federal Judicial Center (FJC) is the federal courts' agency for continuing education and research. Congress established the Center in 1967 as a separate organization within the federal judicial system at the request of the Judicial Conference of the United States. A nine-member board chaired by the Chief Justice of the United States, determines its basic policies. The FJC is located in the Thurgood Marshall Federal Judiciary Building which is immediately adjacent to Union Station.

The Education Division produces educational programs, materials, and resources for federal court of appeals, district, bankruptcy, and magistrate judges and for federal judicial branch employees, including persons serving in clerk of court, probation and pretrial services offices. The Division delivers education and resources through a variety of means including: in-person programs to which participants travel; in-person programs conducted in courthouses for local participants; audio-, video-, and web conferences; programs and materials delivered over the courts intranet; and printed publications. The Education Division contains four teams: Judicial and Legal Education, Executive Education, Management & Professional Development, and Probation & Pretrial Programs.
