Judging in the DC Circuit: 1994 and 2013

[We are moving this up, because the conversation between these two Federal District Judges takes place today, Wednesday February 25, at 4:30.]

A Conversation on Judging: Then and Now will take place in the Ceremonial Courtroom of the E. Barrett Prettyman Court House, Washington, DC, on Wednesday, February 25.  It will be "a dialogue featuring Senior Judge Paul Friedman, who joined the U.S. District Court in 1994, and Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, who joined the Court in 2013, moderated by Miguel Estrada. The judges will compare their experiences on the bench as they discuss changes in the confirmation process, the makeup of the Court, dockets, training, staffing, technology, and the impact of these and other changes on judging." Admission is free; reservations are not required.  The event is sponsored by the Historical Society of the District of Columbia Circuit.
