Keynote Speaker: Tani Gorre Cantil-Sakauye Chief Justice of California
Chief Justice Tani Gorre Cantil-Sakauye is the 28th Chief Justice of the State of California. She was sworn into office on January 3, 2011, and is the first Asian-Filipina American and the second woman to serve as the state’s Chief Justice. At the time she was nominated as Chief Justice, she had served more than 20 years on California trial and appellate courts, including 6 years on the Court of Appeal, Third Appellate District, in Sacramento.
As leader of California’s judicial branch of government and chair of the Judicial Council, Chief Justice Cantil-Sakauye has focused on a vision for improving the public’s access to justice, building partnerships to lead the judicial branch out of the state’s worst fiscal crisis since the Great Depression, and using ongoing self-assessment to improve the branch’s efficiency, effectiveness, transparency, and accountability. She has also taken a leadership role in revitalizing civic learning and engagement in the state.
