The Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania has named Magisterial District Judge Robert L. Repard of Tioga County as its newest member.
Repard will begin serving his three-year term with the Board on Sept. 1.
“I am honored to have this opportunity to serve as a member of this distinguished group,” Repard said. “I look forward to working with my colleagues on the Board to address the diverse and complex issues facing the legal profession.”
Created in 1972, the 13-member Disciplinary Board is an independent agency under the Supreme Court’s jurisdiction. Its members include 11 attorneys and two non-lawyers from across the state. Funded by annual assessments paid by attorneys licensed to practice in the Commonwealth, the Board assists the Supreme Court in all matters involving attorney licensing and discipline.
Repard currently serves as a Tioga County magisterial district judge. Prior to his service in district court, Repard spent more than two decades working in the criminal justice field as a probation and parole officer with the Tioga County Probation Department, retiring in 2011 as a supervisor.
Recognized for his work in the community, Repard was named Outstanding Law Enforcement Officer of the Year by the Mansfield Area JAYCEES and for outstanding service to the Pennsylvania juvenile justice system by the Pennsylvania Juvenile Court Judges’ Commission.
