Judge Fogel Selected to Head Federal Judicial Center
The Board of the Federal Judicial Center (FJC) has selected
Judge Jeremy Fogel, of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, to be the Center's tenth director.
Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., who chairs the FJC Board, said, "The Board selected Judge Fogel from a number of exemplary candidates. He is an experienced judge and educator who has been deeply involved in the Center's programs over the past decade. The Board is confident that Judge Fogel will be a worthy successor to Judge Barbara J. Rothstein, whom I thank for her eight years of dedicated service as Center director." Rothstein will return to the bench and resume her duties as a U.S. district judge.
Upon being notified of his selection, Fogel said, "I am humbled and deeply honored, and I am looking forward to this opportunity to serve." He hopes to undertake his new responsibilities in October 2011.

Fogel was appointed to the federal bench in 1998, prior to which he served nearly seventeen years in the California state courts. He has served as an FJC faculty member since 2001 and as a lecturer at Stanford Law School since 2003. He received an A.B. degree from Stanford University in 1971 and a J.D. degree from Harvard Law School in 1974.
The FJC (www.fjc.gov) was created by Congress in 1967 to "further the development and adoption of improved judicial administration in the courts," through research and education.
