Keynote Speaker:
Kathryn Flicker, Esq.

Kathy served as the Director of the Division of Criminal Justice from 2000 to 2002, the first woman to hold that position. Before that appointment, Kathy had spent the bulk of her career in the Office of the Mercer County Prosecutor where she served as Acting Prosecutor, First Assistant Prosecutor and Deputy First Assistant Prosecutor. Before joining the Mercer Prosecutor’s Office, she began her professional career in the Division of Criminal Justice as a trial attorney. As a trial prosecutor, Kathy has handled every type of criminal trial, including capital homicide cases, kidnappings, and sexual assaults. 

Among her many trial accomplishments, Flicker successfully prosecuted several high-profile murder cases. She was the lead attorney in the prosecution of Jesse K. Timmendequas, a twice-convicted sex-offender who was sentenced to be executed for the brutal murder of 7-year-old Megan Kanka of Hamilton. The girl's murder led to the passage of Megan's Law, a series of statutes requiring community notification when certain sex-offenders are released from prison. 

After her trial career, Kathy served as a Commissioner on the New Jersey State Commission of Investigation – a statewide investigatory agency – from 2002 to 2010. She has been an Adjunct Professor at Rutgers Law School, where she teaches trial advocacy to second- and third-year law students. Over the course of her career, she has given lectures on trying cases for numerous groups, both professional and civic.

Kathy has received numerous awards, most recently being named by the New Jersey Law Journal to their first class of Lifetime Achievement Award winners based on the totality of excellence in her professional career. She was also awarded the Arthur Armitage Most Distinguished Alumni Award from the Rutgers-Camden School of Law, the Trial Advocacy Award bestowed by the Association of Government Attorneys in Capital Litigation, and the Trial Bar Award bestowed by the Trial Attorneys of New Jersey. 

In her youth, Kathy was a competitive springboard diver. Once ranked in the top-5 in the country, she won the NJ State Championship 13 times, and was a three-time Maccabiah Games champion. Flicker is a graduate of Indiana University and Rutgers School of Law.
