After more than 20 years on the bench, NJC faculty member and former Trustee Janet Berry will retire in April.

Berry has served Nevada’s 2nd Judicial District Court in Reno since 1996. A graduate of Tulane University School of Law, she previously served as a Reno municipal court judge from 1992-1996.

Berry first attended the NJC in 1992 and later graduated from the College’s flagship General Jurisdiction program. She joined our faculty in 1994 and taught more than 25 classes. Berry served on the NJC Board of Trustees from 1996-2003 and was chair of the board in 2001.

In honor of her retirement, Berry will host an “open court” event with cookies and other treats on April 6-7, 2017, from 10-2 p.m. PDT in the Department One Courtroom, located on the third floor of 75 Court Street. Members of the legal and judicial communities are invited to attend. No RSVP is necessary.

Berry plans to continue teaching at the NJC in retirement.
