Her Honour Judge Fletman is looking forward to networking once again with Australian lawyers and speaking about being a woman lawyer and judge in the USA, what’s happening with law reform following the recent decision overturning Roe v Wade, and other topics of interest. This is a unique opportunity for our members to hear directly from an American judicial officer.

Abbe F. Fletman is a judge in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas and Team Leader of the Complex Litigation Center of the Civil Division, where she supervises all mass tort, non-jury and arbitration appeal cases. She was elected to the bench in 2015 and has served as a criminal and civil trial judge. She earned a B.A. from the University of Chicago, a J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School, and an L.L.M. in Trial Advocacy from Temple University’s Beasley School of Law. From 1988 to 2014, Judge Fletman was a trial lawyer in private practice with a concentration in intellectual property and technology matters, complex commercial cases, women’s sports-related litigation and election law. She is a former chair of the Woman Advocate Committee of the American Bar Association Litigation Section. She is the recipient of numerous awards for her work on behalf of women and the LGBTQI community.
