演讲人介绍:

    陈卓光法官是美国第二巡回上诉法院第一位和唯一一位华裔也是亚裔法官,而且是美国联邦上诉法院系统目前唯一在职的亚裔法官。

    陈卓光法官1954年出生于香港,1956年随父母移居美国。70年代先后毕业于普林斯顿大学、福特汉姆(Fordham)大学法学院。80年代曾任联邦地区法官的书记官、政府律师、私人执业律师等。

    1994年9月,克林顿总统任命其担任纽约南区(曼哈顿)联邦地区法院法官。陈法官在此任上主审过许多经典大案,包括Google图书馆著作权纠纷案、麦道夫(Bernard L. Madoff)金融诈骗案等。2009年10月6日,奥巴马总统提名陈法官出任第二巡回上诉法院法官。随后美国参议院以98:0全票通过此项任命。2010年4月22日,陈卓光宣誓升任巡回法院法官。

    陈卓光法官声誉卓著,深孚众望。加州大学Hastings法学院院长Frank Wu称其最有可能被提名担任美国最高法院的首位亚裔大法官。

    Judge Denny Chin is the first and only judge of Asian descent to sit on the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, the prestigious federal appellate court for New York, Connecticut, and Vermont.  He is currently the only active federal appellate judge of Asian descent in the United States.  As Frank Wu, the Dean of Hastings Law School in California, has written, Judge Chin is a leading candidate to be the first Asian-American appointment to the Supreme Court of the United States.

    Judge Chin was born in Hong Kong in 1954 and came to the United States with his family in 1956.  He graduated from Stuyvesant High School in New York in 1971, Princeton University magna cum laude in 1975, and from Fordham University School of Law in 1978, where he was managing editor of the Fordham Law Review.  After law school he was a law clerk to a federal district judge, and then worked as a government lawyer from 1982 to 1986, and as a lawyer in private practice from 1980 to 1982 and 1986 to 1994, specializing in labor and employment law. 

    In September 1994, Judge Chin received his commission to be a U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of New York (Manhattan) from President William J. Clinton.  He served as a federal trial judge until 2010, presiding over many high-profile civil and criminal cases including the Google Books settlement, the United Nations Oil for Food Program, and the guilty plea and sentencing of financier Bernard L. Madoff.  On October 6, 2009, President Barack Obama nominated Judge Chin to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.  The U.S. Senate confirmed his appointment by unanimous vote (98-0) on April 22, 2010, and he was sworn in on April 26, 2010.
