Dear Fellow Judges,Presenter

On behalf of the Nevada Judges of Limited Jurisdiction, I welcome you to the 2024 Limited Jurisdiction Judges Summer Seminar.

Several meetings will take place on the first day of the seminar. As is customary, the Education Committee will meet before the start of the conference. This meeting will be chaired by our Education Committee Chair, Chief Judge Kevin Higgins, and will begin on Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. All are welcome to attend and contribute to future seminars- we need your input on future education planning! The NJLJ Executive Board will meet at 10:00 a.m. following the Education Committee. The semi-annual NJLJ Business Meeting is scheduled for the afternoon starting at 3:00 p.m. This meeting is for the general membership to discuss the business of the organization for the upcoming year. Members who are unable to attend the business meeting in person may do so by Zoom, and the link will be emailed out to judges in the coming weeks by Judge Dorothy Rowley, the NJLJ Secretary.

The Seminar’s educational portion will start on Tuesday at 1:00 p.m. Our agenda includes sessions on the admission of scientific evidence, the Fentanyl crisis, and protection orders. Ethics credits will be provided through a Media Relations 101 program as well as the annual judicial discussion panel. Sessions on probable cause, Nevada appellate decisions, managing a jury trial, and judicial wellness will round out the week of learning.

Our host judge has slated amazing social events during the week, so be sure to review the seminar schedule in the program for more information.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am very excited to see everyone in Winnemucca!

Judge Natalie Tyrrell
NJLJ President
