Making a Seat at the Table: Trailblazing
Judges of the 2nd Judicial District
Portrait Celebration of Judge Stephen Maxwell
In Collaboration with
County Law Library.
Join us in-person at the Ramsey County Law
Judge Stephen Maxwell became the first African American appointed as a district
court bench, not only in Ramsey County, but also in the whole state of
Minnesota. In early 2020, the Ramsey County Law Library received its first
judicial portrait of a judge of color — Judge Stephen L. Maxwell. To acknowledge
the new accession, a brief celebration will feature highlights of Judge
Maxwell’s judicial and professional career.
As we honor Judge Maxwell on
this October 13th date, it is a fitting time to recognize Ramsey County District
Court (and Minnesota Judiciary) trailblazers who helped open doors for future
generations with a judges panel. This CLE panel presentation is a candid
conversation with Judge Kathleen Gearin, Judge Gail Chang Boar, and Judge George
Stephenson - three Ramsey County trailblazing judges discussing the trailblazing
judges in Ramsey County.
Additionally, the judges will
discuss their road to the bench - insights about their successes and obstacles
they have overcome in the legal profession and provide attendees with
suggestions on how they can chart their own path.
Reception with light
refreshments will follow immediately after the program.
Judge George T. Stephenson
Judge Kathleen R. Gearin
