Inside Peek Into a

Judge's Profession


Peter offers an informal peek into his career, sharing some of his stories and Q&A from anyone curious enough to take his SĀGE class. 


Hon. Peter Buchsbaum clerked for the Chief Justice of New Jersey in 1970-1971, then served as a Superior Court judge for 9 years focusing mainly on family and civil cases. He graduated from Cornell University & Harvard Law School. He taught a course and writes articles on the topic of Judging. 

Peter, originally from New York, lived in Western New Jersey for 45 years and now spends some of his post-retirement in Israel together with his wife. They have three grown sons, one of which has autism.

Mostly I just got to connect with Peter and hear some wild stories from his time on the bench!
