On May 16 at the 308at156 Art Gallery attached to Lee Anav Chung White & Kim, the Judiciary Committee held Part IV of Bootcamp to the Bench: Endorsements. The panel, moderated by Judiciary Committee Co-Chair Linda Lin, included:

  • Vincent Eng, Partner & CEO, VENG Group
  • Vincent Chang, Partner, Wollmuth Maher & Deutsch LLP
  • Hon. Julio Rodriguez, Judge, Criminal Court, Bronx County

The panel parsed out the differences between different bar associations’ judicial endorsement procedures and between state and federal judicial applications. Overall, they emphasized a strategic judicial applications, where each component of the application (including endorsements) shed a favorable light on different parts of the candidate’s profile and story. 

For those looking to learn more about the road to the bench, the series starts up again in the fall. Thank you to everyone who made this event possible, including the panelists, the Judiciary Committee, co-sponsoring organizations (HNBA, KALAGNY, MBBA, and SABANY), and Lee Anav Chung White & Kim.
