Nebraska Workers' Compensation Court

Nebraska Workers' Compensation Court

The Nebraska Workers' Compensation Court features 14,000 square feet of space designed to meet the requirements of the Center for State Courts, as well as up-to-date security requirements for staff and judiciary court members. Three courtrooms serve the needs of four judges.

Additional staff spaces include a library, conference/technology education spaces, and private offices for law clerks and the clerk of the court. The design restricts access to the court spaces as well as physical contact between litigants and court personnel. This is accomplished through separated corridors, hardened physical barriers at the reception counter, and private entrances for court personnel. Courtrooms are equipped with the latest audio and video technologies. Flexibility to meet future technology was incorporated in the systems design.

Spaces were designed to embody dignity and respect for those seeking legal closure to their disputes. All aspects, from the lighting to the finish materials and acoustics, are sensitive to the physical and emotional activities of the court.
