At this lively brown-bag-lunch panel, a trio of D.C. Superior Court judges will discuss hearing cases in a high-traffic urban courthouse, and the twists and turns in their careers, and how pro bono and public-interest lawyers help to ensure the effective administration of justice.

Our panel consists of Judges Julie Becker, Danya Dayson, and Maribeth Raffinan. The panel will be moderated by Chinh Le, Legal Director of the Legal Aid Society for the District of Columbia. You also will have a chance to hear about the process for becoming a judge in DC from Katia Garrett, Executive Director of the District of Columbia Judicial Nomination Commission.

The event is free and open to all! Bring your lunch – drinks and desserts will be provided.
