KS Judges Gather for Annual Conference

Nuss LawtonKansas Supreme Court Chief Justice Lawton NussJudges from across Kansas met in Topeka to brush up on their judicial knowledge as part of an annual conference. This year, judges also heard a presentation on the judiciary in Nazi Germany. They heard how small compromises by judges in areas like civil liberties eventually ballooned. That helped the Nazi party grow in power and carry out atrocities. Marcus Appelbaum, with the National Holocaust Memorial Museum, says there are lessons modern judges can take from the example.

Chief justice of the Kansas Supreme Court, Lawton Nuss, says the conference is also an opportunity for judges to learn more about changes in the legal system.

Around 300 current and retired judges gathered for the conference.
