JILEP’s main contribution to the event was the presentation of Colin R. Winchester, Executive Director of the Utah Judicial Conduct Commission, who spoke on judicial disciplinary regulations and practice in the US. In his presentation, Mr. Winchester described the fairness and transparency of the process of judicial discipline in his state of Utah, as well as in other states such as California.

He explained how his office conducted investigations into judicial misconduct. He described the measures Utah takes to make sure the public understands the judicial disciplinary process and the outcome of cases. Through his presentation Mr. Winchester sent a message to the conference on the need to balance judicial accountability with judicial independence. Mr. Winchester followed up his appearance at the conference with a visit to the Supreme Court of Georgia where he met with Konstantin Kublashvili, Chief Justice of Georgia.
