Save the Date: Roadways to the Bench | April 3, 2023
The Administrative Office of U.S. Courts will hold its second nationwide program on diversity in the federal judiciary, with a particular focus on promoting greater diversity among bankruptcy and magistrate judges. The first Roadways to the Bench event, held simultaneously in 19 cities and 16 states across the country, focused primarily (but not exclusively) on the bankruptcy bench. By all accounts, it was a resounding success: several lawyers who attended that event are now judges! For more information contact Beryl Dixon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
