Forum on Independent Judiciary

Tuesday, January 23 at 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm

Pacific McGeorge School of Law, Classroom B
3200 Fifth Ave., Sacramento, CA

This panel will explore the importance of an independent and impartial judiciary in the United States. The impact of external pressures on individual judges, and the judiciary as a whole, poses a threat to our carefully balanced democratic institutions and diminishes public confidence in the functioning of our courts. This program will include distinguished jurists and academic voices exploring the concepts of independence and impartiality in the American justice system.


Judge Barbara A. Kronlund, Civil Judge Superior Court, San Joaquin County

  • California Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye
  • United States District Judge Morrison C. England, Jr. ‘83
  • Retired Presiding Justice of the Court of Appeal, Third Appellate District, Arthur Scotland ‘74
  • McGeorge Distinguished Professor of Law Michael Vitiello
