State of the Judiciary is judicial branch’s version of State of the State

Today is the State of the State, an annual speech given by the governor about the challenges and opportunities facing Ohio. It’s the Buckeye version of the annual State of the Union speech the President gives.

Did you know that the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Ohio delivers a similar address every September? It’s called the State of the Judiciary.

Every judge in every court in Ohio is invited to hear what the Chief Justice thinks are the most important issues confronting the judicial branch. The speech occurs at the same time as the annual meeting of the Ohio Judicial Conference, which is the association of judges throughout the state.

Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor gave her first State of the Judiciary last year. To learn more and view a video, click this link:
