John Browning Discusses Potential Judicial Education Requirements

September 22, 2022

Spencer Fane attorney John Browning shared his thoughts on how judges can remain informed of today’s ever-evolving technology in a recent article published by Government Technology, a print and digital publication focusing on public-sector innovation for state and local government.

In the article, How Do – and Should – Judges Stay Up to Date on Technology?, John explained how the lack of a uniform system impacts overall technology curriculum.

John stated, “We see certain states and their judicial education conferences making technology a regular part of the curriculum, but there’s still nothing uniform across the country.”

He also shared that “judges in all states should have a mandatory duty of tech competence, obligating them to be conversant on technology topics.”

At Spencer Fane, John views his role as a trial lawyer to be that of a problem-solver for his clients. Whether it’s analyzing a case’s potential for early resolution through a dispositive motion, working with a client to develop a defensive trial strategy, or putting his extensive writing and media experience to use in helping a client protect its brand in the public eye, John brings a pragmatic, problem-solving approach. John is also a former Justice on the Fifth Court of Appeals.
