Christina Habas and This I Believe

essayist Christina HabasEach week we’ll hear a new This I Believe essay - today from Christina Habas. She’s a judge in the Criminal Division of Denver District Court in Colorado. She previously worked in private practice focusing on employment law, civil rights issues, insurance cases and personal injury. Habas has taught at the University of Denver and is a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates. As important as judges and lawyers are to the judicial process, Habas believes jurors have the most vital role. And she hopes more of us will take the job of jury duty more seriously.
