Join the American Journal of Criminal Law as we host Judge Mark Lane for our career talks. Judge Lane is the United States Magistrate Judge for the Western District of Texas. A magistrate judge derives his or her authority from the federal district court and is given duties as fits the needs of the court. Often a magistrate judge's duties include issuing search warrants, issuing arrest warrants, overseeing the first appearances of criminal defendants, setting bail, holding preliminary hearings and examinations, and presiding over misdemeanor and petty offense cases.

Before serving as the US magistrate judge, Judge Lane was a prosecutor in Austin before becoming an Assistant United States Attorney.

Please join us for an exciting career talk and learn more about federal criminal law practice from the perspective of a federal prosecutor and a federal judge.
