The first inaugural Legislative-Judicial Summit was held on Wednesday, February 27, 2019 in downtown Sacramento. The Legislative-Judicial Summit was the first of its kind and brought together over one hundred and twenty-five attendees and seventeen speakers. The Summit brought together leaders in the California Legislature with judicial leaders in California state and federal courts to discuss civic and policy challenges each face in carrying out their respective public roles.
In seeking to create a more open dialogue and enhanced understanding between legislative and judicial leaders, the Summit will provide a platform for an open exchange of ideas between the two branches of government.
