Event description

Description

IWIRC friends, IWIRC is supporting an October Judicial Diversity Event and we hope you will, too, by attending the Kickoff Meeting on April 8, 2019. Please see below for more details.

______________________________________________________________________________________

Want to help encourage more women and minority attorneys to become bankruptcy judges? Join us on April 8, 2019, at 12 PM for a kick-off organizational meeting for “Roadways to the federal bench: Who me? A bankruptcy judge?”

The Judicial Conference of US Committee on Administration of Bankruptcy System is holding a conference October 24, 2019, from 3 PM to 5 PM. The event involves round-table discussions with law students and federal judges (bankruptcy and Article III). The conference will encourage law students to consider bankruptcy law and, more importantly, serving on the federal bankruptcy bench, which the least diverse bench in the federal system. Additionally, law firms that opt to help with sponsorship of the event will have the opportunity for recruiting of law students from Texas law schools.

Judge Isgur is leading the Houston event and he has asked for attorneys to assist him in executing the event.

The conference will have “Table Mentors” to ensure diverse attendance. A Table Mentor will be an individual from an organization (such as the Federal Bar Association) or law firm, charged with bringing people to fill the seats and to help in organizational efforts (e.g. fundraising or outreach to law schools ). The Table Mentors will form a subcommittee of the Conference. To encourage participation, Table Mentors will be invited to a social event with Judges prior to the Conference.

Our kick-off organizational meeting for Table Mentors and/or individuals who can help with organization of the event is April 8, 2019, at 12 PM at the U.S. Courthouse at 515 Rusk Street.

If you can attend the meeting, please email Jennifer Hardy, jhardy2@willkie.com>, or Daniela Mondragon, Daniela_mondragon@txs.uscourts.gov> to confirm attendance. We look forward to working with you!
