Please join me in congratulating Judge Sippel for his appointment as the Judicial Conference Liaison to the Federal Judges Association (FJA). The appointment period is for 2023-2025. The FJA “…is a national voluntary organization of federal judges … whose mission is to support and enhance the role of its members within a fair, impartial and independent judiciary; to actively build a community of interest among its members; and to sustain our system of justice through civics education and public outreach.” Examples of civics education and public outreach are materials on the rule of law & separation of powers, landmark U.S. Supreme Court cases, jury service, and a wide variety of multi-media and YouTube programming. Judge Sippel has spent his career contributing to individual justice, the administration of the federal judiciary, and civic education of and engagement with the American people.
– Chief Judge Stephen R. Clark
