The Law & Economics Center at George Mason University School of Law was pleased to host the Tenth Annual Meeting of the American College of Business Court Judges in conjunction with the Judicial Symposium on the Economics and Law of Public Pension Reform. ACBCJ luncheon and annual meeting immediately followed the Symposium.
In October 2005, a group of judges working with complex business cases founded the American College of Business Court Judges (ACBCJ). With the assistance of the Law & Economics Center at the George Mason University School of Law, the ACBCJ develops programs and seminars to equip business court judges around the county with the knowledge and skills necessary to deal efficiently and professionally with the increasingly complex issues they confront.
The ACBCJ offers:
- access to business court judges who have been instrumental in establishing and/or expanding the business courts in their states;
- access to judges who have drafted and promulgated rules, procedures and forms for use in business courts;
- access to business court judges with experience in presiding over complex commercial matters and with the functioning of business courts;
- access to leaders in the American Bar Association Business Law Section who have spearheaded the business court movement and who regularly consult with and monitor the progress of business courts around the country;
- and access to top-notch educational programs geared toward facilitating the work of business courts.
