Every year, Harvard Law School’s LL.M. (Master of Laws) program includes a significant number of students who work in or with the judiciary. The LL.M. Class of 2019, with eight current or former judges, 18 Supreme or Constitutional Court clerks, and a district magistrate, is no exception. On March 14, four of the judges gathered in Pound Hall for a panel discussion on “Judicial Leadership Around the Globe.”

The participants included (from left) Emil Nordin, Junior Judge, Svea Court of Appeal, Sweden; Etiene Coelho Martins, Judge, Federal Judiciary of Brazil; Sherif Ayoub, Junior Judge, Administrative Court of Cairo; and Chikondi Mandala, Assistant Registrar, High Court of Malawi. The session was moderated by Hon. John C. Cratsley (Retired), who served for 24 years on the Massachusetts Superior Court and now teaches the Judicial Process in Trial Courts clinic and seminar at HLS.

The program was presented by the HLS Graduate Program and the Harvard Law School Library.
