ABOUT JFI

The Judicial Family Institute (JFI) is a national organization dedicated to providing information and education on topics of concern and importance to judicial households and their extended family members. We set aside personal differences in politics, geography, and positions on controversial issues to attend to JFI matters.

 

The JFI is a subcommittee of the Past President's Committee of the Conference of Chief Justices and enjoys an affiliation with the National Center for State Courts, the host of our website.

QUESTIONS FOR PANEL DISCUSSION

ON JUDICIAL FAMILY LIFE

1. What is the "bigger picture" from your point of view? For instance, why are you pleased the judge in your family is willing to serve? What does judicial service mean to the rule of law in a free society, to your community, and to you?

 

2. In what specific areas do you see families being supportive of and benefiting from judicial service?


3. What is your family policy regarding calls from the media? What techniques have you found to be successful in fielding questions from friends and neighbors about cases? What attitudes and measures would you recommend to others about living in the public eye?
