Recent Programs

IJA's 58th Annual New Appellate Judges Seminar was held July 17-22, 2016. Thirty-six federal, state supreme, state intermediate and military court appellate judges from across the country attended along with eight faculty judges. Here is what some had to say:

“This is my 3rd or 4th seminar/conference as an appellate judge and is the best one -- most helpful.” 


“I think the seminar was the most relevant, practical, and enjoyable CLE-type meeting I've ever attended. I appreciate all you did to make it so.”
