The school of law invited local judges to hear Associate Justice Carlos Moreno of the California State Supreme Court give his presentation titled "Justice for All Seasons." The presentation will take place on Thursday, September 11, at 5:30 p.m. in the Second Floor Gallery of Sullivan Hall.
Justice Moreno is a frequent speaker on the need for a justice system that respects diversity and provides equal access to justice for all. He has served on the California State Supreme Court since October 2001. Prior to that, he held various judicial positions in the state of California, and in 1998 he was appointed by President Bill Clinton to the United States District Court for the Central District of California. In addition, Justice Moreno has held numerous leadership positions within the legal and wider community, including serving as President of the Mexican American Bar Association and as chair of the California Blue Ribbon Commission on Children in Foster Care. He is a graduate of Stanford Law School and has served on its Board of Visitors.
Justice Moreno is only the third Hispanic justice ever to serve on the California Supreme Court, and the first in more than a decade.
