2017 Keynote Speaker
CJI is honored to welcome former South Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Jean Hoefer Toal as the keynote speaker for the Judicial Excellence for Colorado Dinner. Chief Justice Toal served 27 years as the state's first female justice and female chief justice. For more than four decades, Toal has been a game-changer in South Carolina, pulling off the high-wire act of being a successful revolutionary in civil and women’s rights while working within the hidebound and sometimes rarified world of South Carolina’s political and legal system. Chief Justice Toal modernized the South Carolina court system, bringing greater transparency to the state’s judiciary.
