Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) April 28, 2012
Mark Tratos, co-managing shareholder of the Las Vegas office of Greenberg Traurig, LLP was recently named chair-elect of the National Judicial College (NJC) by its Board of Trustees for the 2013-2014 term. In this role, Tratos will work on the NJC’s planning and preparation efforts as it celebrates a golden milestone and marks its 50th Anniversary of serving the men and women of the nation’s judiciary. Tratos has been a member of NJC’s Board of Trustees since 2008.
“I am deeply honored to serve the organization that serves our nation’s judges and our judiciary’s staff,” said Tratos. “At the anniversary celebrations planned throughout 2013, we will both look back and ahead, reflecting on the magnitude of the impact the NJC has had on the thousands of judges worldwide who have come together since the NJC’s founding in 1964, while also creating the foundation and sharing ideas that will help prepare the NJC for its next 50 years.”
The NJC’s 50th Anniversary plans include symposiums in Chicago, Reno and Washington D.C. featuring keynote speakers, panels, events and workshops. The general themes of the conference include civility in the courtroom, the vanishing jury trial and preparing the next generation of judges. According to the NJC, the golden anniversary year will also be a time of renewed commitment to the tenets of its mission: education, innovation and advancing justice.
The NJC serves as the one place where judges from across the nation and around the world can meet to improve the delivery of justice and advance the rule of law through a disciplined process of professional study and collegial dialogue, according to the NJC website. The NJC offers an average of 95 courses/programs annually with more than 3,000 judges attending from all 50 states, U.S. territories and more than 150 countries.
