Minnesota Supreme Court Chief Justice Lorie S. Gildea will speak at a public forum at the Chalberg Theatre at Central Lakes College in Brainerd at 7 p.m. April 25.

Gildea's presentation will focus on the work of Minnesota's justice system, the important role the courts play in preserving the rights and freedoms of citizens, and the critical need for an independent and impartial judiciary, a news release from the Minnesota Judicial Branch said. Following her presentation, Gildea will hold a question-and-answer session with forum attendees.

The event is free and open to the public, though seating is limited.

The forum-"An Evening with the Chief Justice"-is sponsored by the Gordon Rosenmeier Center for State and Local Government. The Rosenmeier Center is a non-partisan organization that strives to educate and encourage participation of citizens in effective government and the political process.

Gildea said she is looking forward to the opportunity to visit Brainerd and take part in the public event.

"Educating and engaging the public about the court system is central to the mission of the judges and staff who serve in Minnesota's Judicial Branch," Gildea said in the release. "Ultimately, the justice system belongs to the people we serve, and it's crucial that we work to build the public's trust and understanding of the judiciary. I'm looking forward to my visit to Brainerd, and to talking to people about Minnesota's courts, which have a well-deserved reputation for being among the most accessible, well-managed, and fairest in the country."
