Bootcamp: Road to the Bench is the Judiciary Committee’s annual Fall Conference workshop focused on providing valuable information for anyone seeking to one day become a judge. The series encourages future judicial candidates to take charge and lead change for a more diverse judiciary by providing them with a roadmap and the tools necessary to ensure success at seeking a position on the bench.

Panelists for the series this year will include sitting judges and members of judicial screening panels who can provide invaluable insight through two interactive segments: (1) a review of the Application, the Interview, and getting Endorsements; and (2) a special mock judicial interview session with Hon. Sanket Bulsara, federal magistrate judge of the Eastern District of New York and former Acting General Counsel of the Securities and Exchange Commission.
