The United States Judicial Conference has a private seminars disclosure reporting policy that requires educational program providers and judges to disclose certain information on judges' attendance at privately funded educational programs. An organization covered by the policy that issues an invitation to a federal judge to attend an educational program as a speaker, panelist, or attendee and offers to pay for or reimburse that judge, in excess of $305, must disclose financial and programmatic information.
