Photo Highlights of the Citizens Justice Summit - April 20, 2002

On April 20, 2002, 120 teachers, police officers, nonprofit leaders, students, retirees, and other community leaders met to discuss a variety of issues that are of import and concern to both the courts and the public. Participants divided into groups and talked about the criminal justice system, children and families, and business, individuals, and property topics as they relate to the law. Each group reported main points, ideas, and suggestions to the entire assembly, all of which was recorded by a court reporter.
The CBA will prepare a report on the recommendations of conference participants and make copies available online. Periodically, the Citizens Justice Summit Committee will announce reforms and updates.
Speakers at the Citizens Justice Summit included CBA President Laird Milburn, President-Elect John Moye, Colorado Supreme Court Chief Justice Mary Mullarkey, Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Love Kourlis, and North Carolina Law School Dean Gene Nichol. Facilitators who contributed to the day’s success were Doris Sanders, Jerry Wesley, Jane Noah, Barbara Cashman Hahn, Pam Coffey, Karen Hamilton, Porcia Silverman, Audrey Brodt, Patrick Kenney, and Alexandra Ross.
