Judicial Section

 

Fairfax Circuit Judge Jane Marum Roush reviewed “Civil Decisions of the Supreme Court of Virginia” at the 121st VBA Summer Meeting in July 2011. She was introduced by Roman Lifson of Christian & Barton, L.L.P., in Richmond. The CLE session was a joint presentation of the Appellate Practice, Civil Litigation and Judicial Sections of the VBA.The Judicial Section of The Virginia Bar Association was founded in 1994. The Section's continuing goals, as outlined in its bylaws, are to improve the administration of justice, to promote dialogue and collaboration among state and federal judges, to foster public education about the judicial system and matters of concern to the judiciary, and to provide a forum for the discussion of matters of concern to judges.

From the outset, the VBA Judicial Section has sought to represent as wide a spectrum of Virginia judges as possible. Section bylaws provide that in addition to the chair, the Section Council shall consist of a justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia; a Virginia resident serving as a judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit; a judge of the Virginia Court of Appeals; a judge from each of the U.S. District Courts, Eastern and Western; a circuit court judge from each judicial region; a judge of either a General District Court or a Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court from each judicial region; a U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge; a U.S. Magistrate from either the Eastern or Western District; and a retired state court judge.
