Jeremy Fogel to Lead Berkeley Law’s New Institute

The University of California Berkeley Law School has launched the Berkeley Judicial Institute (BJI), which will examine judicial integrity, ethics, impartiality, political influence, the stresses inherent in being a judge, and other important issues affecting the administration of justice. Jeremy D. Fogel of the Federal Judicial Center (FJC),  will become the program’s executive director. Before joining the FJC, he served on the United States District Court for the Northern District of California; he assumed senior status in 2014.

“One of the things I’ve become acutely aware of as a judge and director of the FJC is that there is far less synergy and collaboration between the legal academy and the judiciary than is needed - Our ability to partner with each other about immediate concerns is limited. Academics can do wonderful research, but it doesn’t always connect with judges,” said Judge Fogel.
