Have you ever wondered how to become a judge? How does the application process work? Must you be politically connected? What type of experience is required? How can we encourage more women to join the bench?
This program will attempt to shine a light on the process and provide practical information on how to steer your career towards becoming a judge, how to become a candidate for judicial appointment, and how to identify strong candidates and support them on the path to becoming a judge.
