The Judicial Conference adopted a private seminars disclosure reporting policy that requires educational program providers and judges to disclose certain information relevant to judges' attendance at privately-funded educational programs.
Any organization covered by the policy that issues an invitation to a federal judge to attend an educational program as a speaker, panelist, or attendee and offers to pay for or reimburse that judge, in excess of $390, must disclose financial and programmatic information. This amount is subject to change every three years in accordance with the cost of living as determined by the Administrator of General Services. (This figure was last adjusted on January 1, 2017.)
