The Judicial Conference Committee on the Administration of the Bankruptcy System is presenting a program called "Roadways to the Federal Bench: Who, Me? A Bankruptcy Judge?" on October 24, 2019, in Seattle, Washington. The program is aimed at increasing diversity on the bankruptcy bench. It will involve a live-stream from Washington, DC of a presentation for about an hour, followed by the participants meeting with federal judges for about an hour, followed by a reception. We expect to have 100 participants (consisting of law students and young lawyers) separated into groups of ten, with each group meeting 2-3 federal judges for 15 minutes at a time in a "speed dating" format. The judges will offer their thoughts and insights on how to get to the federal bench.
