Join the Federalist Society as we host Senior Judge Richard J. Leon of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Judge Leon will share his advice on creating and sustaining a successful legal career, based on his experience in both the government and private practice.
Judge Leon was appointed to the United States District Court in February 2002. Immediately prior to his appointment to the bench, Judge Leon was engaged in private practice in Washington, D.C., as a partner in the Washington office of Baker & Hostetler and Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease.
Prior to and while in private practice, Judge Leon served as counsel to Congress in the investigations of three sitting Presidents. In 1987, he was the Deputy Chief Minority Counsel for the U.S. House Select “Iran-Contra” Committee. From 1992-1993, he was the Chief Minority Counsel to the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee’s “October Surprise” Task Force. In 1994, Judge Leon was Special Counsel to the U.S. House Banking Committee for its “Whitewater” investigation. He also served in 1997 as Special Counsel to the bipartisan U.S. House Ethics Reform Task Force. Judge Leon is currently an adjunct law professor at the Georgetown University Law Center and the George Washington University Law School.
