Promoting Equity from the Bench:
Judicial Selection, Oversight, and Training

This panel examines how judges are elected, appointed, and assigned to family court, the training they receive, and the resulting shortage of judges with the appropriate knowledge, background, and/or experience to handle the complexity and volume of family law cases involving intimate partner violence. Panelists discuss the inequity for litigants created by short-term judicial family court assignments and the need for increased judicial transparency and accountability.
