As part of its efforts to foster diversity in the bankruptcy bench and bar, the Judicial Conference of the United States Committee on the Administration of the Bankruptcy System presents: Roadways to the Federal Bench: Who, Me? A Bankruptcy Judge? Interested lawyers and law students are being invited to participate in roundtable discussions with local federal bankruptcy, magistrate, district, and appellate judges about pathways to the federal bench for candidates with diverse backgrounds. This is the first time this program is being offered and it is anticipated similar programs will be put on every couple of years to get young lawyers thinking about applying for judgeships. While the focus is on the bankruptcy court, bankruptcy experience is not necessary and the Judicial Conference is encouraging anyone interested in pursuing a federal judgeship to attend.
The program is October 24, beginning at 2:00 p.m. in the jury assembly room in the Alfred A. Arraj Courthouse. The first hour of the program be a panel discussion moderated by The Honorable Andre M. Davis (City Solicitor, Baltimore City Department of Law) with panelists Hon. Bernice B. Donald (6th Cir.), Hon. Frank J. Bailey (Bankr. D. Mass.) and Hon. Robert A. Gordon (Bankr. D. Maryland). The panel discussion will be live-streamed to eighteen cities, including Denver. The second hour will be a series of roundtable discussions with attending judges sharing their own pathways to the bench, including the selection and appointment processes. Before the program, materials will be provided to you which outline the specific process for bankruptcy judges but each judge’s individual pathway will provide participants with an understanding that we all got to our current positions by a wide range of paths. Following the roundtable discussions, participants are invited to a reception.
