The U.S. Judicial Conference adopted a private seminars disclosure reporting policy (pdf) that requires educational program providers and judges to disclose certain information relevant to judges' attendance at privately-funded educational programs.
Any organization covered by the policy that issues an invitation on or after January 1, 2007 (for a program beginning after that date) to a federal judge to attend an educational program as a speaker, panelist, or attendee and offers to pay for or reimburse that judge, in excess of $375, must disclose financial and programmatic information.
