The Conference of Chief Justices met in Washington, as part of activities sponsored by the National Center for State Courts (NCSC). One highlight of the meeting is the "Conversation with the Chief Justices" of the states' highest courts. As he has for more than a decade, CCL President Robert S. Peck moderated the conversation, in which more than 20 chief justices participated. Invitees to the conversation include members of the NCSC lawyers and corporate counsel committees. The event is capped the same evening by a dinner at the U.S. Supreme Court, where a state judge doing innovative work is honored with the Rehnquist Award.
