How do federal judges make it to the bench? Our esteemed panel of Federal judges will discuss how they navigated the system to get where they are today. This program is the second in the WBA’s “Pathways to the Bench Series”, and our panel will focus on the federal court system.
A networking reception generously sponsored by Holmes Costin & Marcus PLLC and Arent Fox LLP will follow the WBA program.
