Chancellor's Forum on March 24: Judicial Retirement Age to Be Question on April Ballot
On April 26, Pennsylvanians will be asked to vote on extending the judicial retirement age. Join the Philadelphia Bar Association for a special Chancellor's Forum on the judicial retirement age.
Speakers will discuss both reasons why voters should consider being in favor of extending the retirement age of judges in Pennsylvania as well as why voters should consider opposing the extension.
Given the referendum on this issue that will go before Pennsylvania voters in the April 26 Primary Election, this Forum will be an opportunity for members of the Philadelphia Bar Association as well as members of the public to hear from, and ask questions of, elected leaders and experts on both sides of the issue.
Panelists include Rep. Kate Harper, 61st Legislative District, Pennsylvania House of Representatives; Joseph J. Mittleman, Director of Judicial Programs for the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts; Dr. Barry W. Rovner, Director of Geriatric Psychiatry at Jefferson University Hospital; and Sen. Anthony H. Williams, 8th District, Pennsylvania State Senate. The program will be moderated by Vincent R. McGuinness, Jr., managing partner, Cozen O'Connor.
Attendees are invited to a wine-and-cheese networking reception following the Chancellor's Forum from 5:15-6:30 p.m.
This program is free for members of the Philadelphia Bar Association and $15.00 for non-members. Registration is required for all attendees. To register, click here.
