The MBBA Judicial Training Academy is a training program aimed at improving bench diversity in our local State and federal courts. The program consists of a series of curated workshops addressing career trajectory, personal narrative, and campaign issues related to the process of being appointed or running for a judicial post. In addition to the intensive workshops, the Judicial Training Academy also includes a mentorship component, which allows participants to tap into the rich talents and experience of our judiciary. Only MBBA members in good standing are eligible to participate in the Judicial Training Academy.
