Judge Lefkow, who was one of Judge Fairchild's clerks, spoke in honor of her mentor. The talk took the form of a "walk down memory lane," in which Judge Lefkow shared her own memories of working with Judge Fairchild as well as the memories of her fellow clerks, who had sent their contributions to her in advance. Judge Lefkow's two current clerks, Jordan Russell and Jed Roher, stood with her as the three of them gave a dramatic presentation, taking the voices of Judge Fairchild and his clerks, many of whom were in the audience at the well-attended event. Roher, who read the lines of Judge Fairchild, is a third-year student at the UW Law School. As the lecture was about to begin, Judge Fairchild himself entered the room to a standing ovation.
