DELAWARE HOSTS 2012 CONFERENCE OF CHIEF JUSTICES MIDYEAR MEETING
Supreme Court Chief Justice Myron T. Steele will host the upcoming 2012 Conference of Chief Justices (CCJ) Midyear Meeting. This is the first time that Delaware has hosted the Conference of Chief Justices. The Conference of Chief Justices was founded in 1949 to provide an opportunity for the highest judicial officers of the states to meet and discuss matters of importance in improving the administration of justice, rules and methods of procedure, and the organization and operation of state courts and judicial systems, and to make recommendations and bring about improvements on such matters. Attendees from across the country will participate in the four-day conference which will include an exciting educational program focusing on "Commercial and Business Law" with renowned panelists from both the United States and abroad, as well as social activities at local landmarks. Chief Justice Steele will begin his term as President of CCJ next summer (August 2012).
