The Mediation Society is thrilled to announce that, the Honorable LaDoris Cordell will be our speaker at TMS’s annual Martin Luther King Day event, to be held Thursday, January 20, 2022 from 5 to 7 p.m. on Zoom.
Judge Cordell was the first Black female state court judge in Northern California, sitting on the Santa Clara Superior Court bench for nineteen years.
