It has been an honor to serve as the Chief Judge of the United States Court of Federal Claims. Leading this Court and working with the exceptional staff of the Clerk’s Office, especially during these extraordinary times, has been a special privilege. I congratulate my friend and colleague, Judge Elaine Kaplan, on her designation to serve as our Court’s newest Chief Judge and wish her all the best in her new position.
The Bar Association provides its members numerous educational opportunities and opportunities for practitioners to meet and interact with the judges of the Court and colleagues from both public and private practice for these purposes. Our members work closely with the Court’s judges to develop programs, contribute to revisions of the Court’s Rules, and organize a broad range of educational and other activities.
