2015 Judicial Excellence Awards Honorees
CJI Announces 2015 Judicial Honorees
The Colorado Judicial Institute has proudly announced the organization's 2015 judicial honorees. The honorees will be recognized at the October 20th Judicial Excellence for Colorado Dinner.
The Judicial Excellence Awards will be presented to three judges in recognition of their outstanding service to Colorado.
Judge Angela R. Arkin—18th Judicial District
Judge Clarisse Gonzales Mangnall—Denver County; 2nd Judicial District
Magistrate Kristina B. Hansson—Boulder County; 20th Judicial District
In addition, CJI will present two Distinguished Judicial Leadership Awards.
Justice Gregory J. Hobbs, Jr.—Colorado Supreme Court
Judge James S. Casebolt—Colorado Court of Appeals
Proceeds from the dinner support the CJI Judicial Education Fund and the programs of CJI. The fund was established in response to cuts to state financial support for continuing education of judges and court personnel. Since 2003, dinner sponsorships have contributed more than $375,000 to judicial education in Colorado. The Judicial Education Fund is one of the few resources available to the judiciary to improve their skills for the benefit of the people of Colorado.
Information on sponsoring the dinner is available here. Or purchase seats at the event here.
