United States Magistrate Judiciary: Its History and Its Future

Since the passage of the Federal Magistrates Act in 1968, magistrate judges have played a crucial part of our justice system. The seventeen men and women currently serving in the Southern District wield great power and great responsibility.  Please join us for a one-hour CLE luncheon featuring an interesting discussion of the past, present and future of the federal magistrate judge system, followed by a lively Q & A with the Hon. Patrick Hunt of the Southern District.

For those who can stay after the presentation, there will be a follow-up to our prior luncheon’s discussion on race and the legal community, including law firm hiring, judicial diversity, voluntary bar associations, and what our members can do to promote positive change on this important issue.
