Guam - Guam will be hosting the 2010 Pacific Regional Judicial Conference next month. The event brings together chief justices, judges and others from areas like Australia, New Zealand, and Papua New Guinea. The Pacific Asia Judges Science and Technology Seminar will follow the event.

The goal of the program is to provide regional judges with the basic scientific background in areas such as psychopathy, substance abuse and addiction, climate change and forensic science.  Chief Justice Robert Torres told KUAM News, "Guam hosted the PRJC in 1995, so this is the first time in 15 years any U.S. jurisdiction has hosted it.  The last two conferences, I think, were in Tonga and Taihiti."

The first conference will be held from November 7-10 at the Hyatt Regency, while the second conference will be held from November 10-12.
