"Women on the Bench"
Chief Justice of the Maine Supreme Judicial Court
Chief Justice Saufley is a pioneer. Not only was she one of Maine's first female deputy attorneys general, but she has presided over the Maine Supreme Judicial Court as the Chief Justice for the past 14 years -- the first woman to ever do so.
It promises to be a fascinating, surprising, and thought-provoking presentation, as the Chief Justice shares with us her unique experiences and point of view. A rare glimpse into a fabulous woman and role model who is a pathfinder and thought leader.

Chief Justice Saufley graduated from the University of Maine at Orono, Phi Beta Kappa, in 1976 and in 1980 became a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. She spent almost 10 years in Maine's Attorney General office, becoming one of the state's first female deputy attorneys general.
In April 1990, she was appointed to the District Court and in 1993 to the Superior Court. Then in 1997, Governor Angus S. King appointed her to the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. Four years later, in December 2001, she was sworn in as Maine's first female Chief Justice of the Supreme Judicial Court and is currently serving her second term.
Chief Justice Saufley is a member of the Conference of Chief Justices and the Committee on Federal-State Jurisdiction of the Judicial Conference of the United States. She is also the recipient of numerous awards, including the Woman Who Makes a Difference Award from the International Women's Forum.
