Chief Justice Arthur T. Vanderbilt
Before the 1947 New Jersey Constitution, litigants and lawyers had to navigate (18) separate courts. Attorney, law professor and reformer - first Chief Justice under the 1947 Constitution Arthur T. Vanderbilt spearheaded massive reforms to the Judiciary. Don't take my word for it however. My fantastic source is the book by Boardwalk Empire author and now-retired Superior Court Judge Nelson C. Johnson - Battleground New Jersey - Vanderbilt, Hague and their Fight for Justice.
