Judge Paul Howard: Visiting Fellow from Brisbane, Australia

Federal Circuit Judge Paul Howard from Brisbane, Australia, spent six weeks at the Center as a Visiting Foreign Judicial Fellow. Judge Howard conducted research on the U.S. judiciary’s budget appropriations process and met with judges, Administrative Office personnel, and congressional staff. He also observed the judiciary budget hearings in April. In Australia, the judiciary must engage directly with the executive branch, rather than through the legislature, to secure funding. Judge Howard is working on a set of recommendations to present to judiciary leadership in Australia.
