On March 16, 2017, the AABANY Judiciary Committee had a robust conversation about judicial screening panels in New York County. Thank you to Dorsey & Whitney LLP for hosting. Led by Tristan Loanzon, Will Wang, and Steve Madra, the group’s discussion focused on the importance of screening panels in maintaining an excellent and diverse judiciary, and how AABANY members can be more effective participants in that process. The group of course was mindful that there should be transparency in procedures but with utmost confidentiality in the process. Plans are being made already for a follow-up session in January 2018.
