JUSTICE BARBARA J. PARIENTE
“Current and Future Challenges facing Florida’s Judiciary”
Justice Pariente has served on the Florida Supreme Court since 1998 and was elected as Chief Justice from 2004 through 2006. She was the second woman to have been appointed to the Supreme Court. Concerned about increasingly political attacks on the judiciary, she has been active in the National Association of Women Judges’ Informed Voters – Fair Judges Project (IVP), which is a non-partisan voter education project designed to educate voters about the importance of a fair and impartial judiciary.
Justice Pariente is the recipient of many awards, including her induction into the Florida Women’s Hall of Fame. Among her many activities, she has worked to improve ways that courts address cases dealing with children and families, including those involving children in foster care and girls in the juvenile justice system. Before her appointment to the Supreme Court, she served on the Fourth District Court of Appeal and started her career as a litigator in Palm Beach County.
