Each year, members of the judiciary come together to discuss their career trajectory and provide advice to young professionals interested in ascending the bench. Representing a diverse array of judges, panelists will discuss both the appointed and elected processes for judges in different jurisdictions as well as ethical guidelines or standards associated with panelists’ paths to becoming judges or retaining their positions. Additionally, the challenges of being an openly LGBT judge, especially in relation to judicial ethics codes, will also be a focus. Members of the International Association of LGBT Judges will be available during and after the session to talk further with attendees.
Speakers: Judge Linda Giles (Massachusetts Superior Courts); Judge Tiffany Palmer (Court of Common Pleas in Philadelphia); Judge Christopher Panos (Circuit Court for Baltimore City); Judge Kristin Rosi (California Department of Insurance); Judge Javier Vargas (Family Court of the State of New York, Kings County)
