Suffolk Law Prof Kenneth King Nominated to Juvenile Court
From Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick's Press Release:
Kenneth J. King, a Newton resident and graduate of the University of Illinois and Northeastern University School of Law, is an Associate Professor of Clinical Law with Suffolk University Law School’s Juvenile Justice Center. Prior to joining the JJC, King worked as both a private practitioner and government lawyer representing youth in a variety of matters including youthful offender and delinquency, care and protection, and termination of parental rights cases. “Over the course of his career, Ken King has demonstrated an unflagging commitment to juvenile justice,” Governor Patrick said. “There are few as qualified and well-suited to adjudicating these most sensitive and important of matters.” King would fill the vacancy on the Middlesex Juvenile Court created by the retirement of the Honorable Gail Garinger.
Professor King joins former Suffolk Law Prof Maureen Monk, whose appointment to the Probate and Family Court was confirmed earlier this year. -jl
