About Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler

Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler was appointed in 2010. Before joining the Court, she was an assistant United States attorney in the Northern District, prosecuting complex white-collar cases with parallel criminal and civil components. While at the United States Attorney's Office, she served as the Professional Responsibility Officer, Deputy Chief of the Criminal Division, and Major Crimes supervisor. Before that, she was a law clerk to the Honorable Cecil F. Poole, United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and was the Civil Appeals Division Chief at the Ninth Circuit's Office of Staff Attorneys.

Judge Beeler has served as President of the Northern District of California's Federal Bar Association, as co-chair of the Lawyer Representatives to the Ninth Circuit from the Northern District, and as a member of the board of directors for the Bar Association of San Francisco (BASF). She is a member of the Ninth Circuit's Jury Trial Improvement Committee, the Northern District of California's Criminal Rules & Practice Committee, BASF's Criminal Advisory Committee, and the Edward J. McFetridge American Inn of Court. In April 2006, Judge Beeler received the Northern District Judicial Conference's Public Service Award.

Judge Beeler teaches Criminal Procedure at U.C. Hastings College of the Law and a civics class at the San Francisco Court School for Juvenile Offenders. She lectures regularly at Bay Area law schools and participated in rule-of-law projects in Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, the Philippines, and Jordan. In 2009, as part of a United States Department of Justice/USAID project, she consulted with the Minister of Justice and the Attorney General of Jordan on draft judicial reform legislation to separate judicial and prosecutorial functions.

Judge Beeler graduated with honors from the University of Washington School of Law, where she was Order of the Coif and an Articles Editor on the Washington Law Review. She received her A.B. with honors from Bowdoin College.
