ROCKVILLE, Md., January 24, 2022 - The Academy of Court-Appointed Masters (ACAM) announced that it is now offering a Training and Mentoring Program to help expand and enhance a more diverse special master community and improve the assistance special masters provide to the administration of justice.
ACAM designed the Program in conjunction with Hon. Jeremy Fogel, retired Federal District Court Judge and Director of the Federal Judicial Center, and will be offering three major training sessions in 2022:
ACAM President David Tenner explained, “expanding and diversifying special masters is critical to making special masters effective partners in the administration of justice, and the Training and Mentoring Program is one of three huge steps towards that end.” He added “this fall, ACAM opened its membership to people who have not previously served as special masters. We are now offering an innovative Training and Mentoring Program to help bring new and more diverse people into the profession and help bring the profession together. And we are working to partner with judges, court staff, bar and ADR organizations, law schools and others interested in the administration of justice to provide more valuable service and open up more opportunities in the profession.”
ACAM Executive Director Merril Hirsh added, “people interested in joining ACAM or participating in these exciting training sessions can sign up now at ACAM’s website. We are thrilled to be doing something for the administration of justice and development of our profession that no one has ever done before.”
