Colorado Court of Appeals Judge Russell Carparelli has been named the new executive director of the American Judicature Society (AJS). He will join the organization in January after retiring from the bench. The AJS recently announced a new affiliation with Vanderbilt University Law School and relocated its offices to Nashville. Chris Guthrie, dean of the law school, said Carparelli “has an exemplary record of service and embodies all of the characteristics one could want in an executive director.” Carparelli earned his law degree from the University of Denver College of Law and a master of laws from the University of Virginia School of Law. Prior to taking the bench, he was in private practice for 12 years and served as an Air Force lawyer for 20 years.
