NFJE Judges Forum

Tomorrow is the Judges Forum put on by the National Foundation for Judicial Excellence.

Our own Judge Carlton W. Reeves, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of  Mississippi, will make a presentation on Writing Opinions with an Eye to the Public and the Press

Here is the description.
Appellate written opinions have many consumers, including the litigants, the legal profession, the media, and the general public. Should judges seek to draft opinions that are easily understood by these diverse audiences, and if so, how is that best accomplished? This panel will discuss the benefits of writing opinions so that the public—usually through the press—can understand them, and techniques for satisfying the public’s demand for greater judicial transparency.

The Co-presenter will be Zoe Tillman, BuzzFeed News, Washington, D.C.
