Cal Chipchase Serves as a Lawyer Delegate to the US District Court Judicial Conference

Cades partner Calvert G. Chipchase has been invited by the US District Court to serve as a lawyer delegate to the Annual Ninth Circuit Judicial Conference. He will serve a three-year term starting on April 7, 2016.

In each judicial district, the judges and the bar organizations select a number of lawyers to serve as lawyer representatives to the annual Ninth Circuit Judicial Conference. These lawyers, who represent the federal bar, meet throughout the year with the judges from their districts to discuss matters of mutual concern. The lawyer representatives also meet separately to work on projects — such as rule changes, alternative dispute resolution, or education programs — designed to aid the courts to improve the administration of justice in their districts.
