Five Seminars Scheduled for 2020 Judicial Candidates

The Ohio Board of Professional Conduct announced the 2020 schedule of judicial campaign conduct seminars for candidates seeking judicial office.

The Code of Judicial Conduct requires each candidate for judicial office, including incumbent judges, to attend a two-hour seminar on campaign practices, finance, and ethics. A judicial candidate must complete the required course within one year prior to or 60 days after the candidate is certified to appear on the ballot.

Each seminar includes presentations by the staff of the Board of Professional Conduct and a representative of the Ohio secretary of state, and a question and answer segment. Judicial candidates are encouraged to bring their treasurers and other campaign staff to the seminars. The seminars are offered at no cost, and there is no preregistration requirement. Judges and attorneys who complete the seminar receive two hours of general continuing legal education credit.

The seminars for 2020 judicial candidates will be conducted on the following dates, times, and locations:

  • Dec. 4, 2019 — 3:45 p.m. at the Embassy Suites, Dublin
  • Jan. 30, 2020 — 1:30 p.m. at the Holiday Inn, Fairborn
