SAN DIEGO (October 14, 2020) – University of San Diego (USD) School of Law alumna Judith Clark, ’89 (JD), was elected Assistant Presiding Judge for Riverside County by her fellow jurists.

Currently, Clark serves as the presiding judge for Riverside County’s juvenile court. While she said she will miss juvenile court, she hopes that she can work toward a greater access to justice within the entire county. Her goal is to hold timely hearings while protecting the health and safety of everyone involved.

Clark has gained a wealth of experience though her various positions in the legal field. After graduating from USD School of Law, she spent 16 years working in the District Attorney’s Office before becoming a juvenile court judge. Clark believes that her extensive background and broad perspective will serve her well in her next two years as Assistant Presiding Judge.
