UPC’s Presiding Judges announced

On 25 April 2023, the UPC has announced the Presiding Judges for the Central Divisions as well as the Regional and Local Divisions.

A corresponding document for designation, as released by the UPC, can be found here.

Hence, the Central Division in Paris (FR) will be headed by Ms. Florence Butin while Ms. Ulrike Voß will preside the Central Division in Munich (DE).

Of course, there is no decision about a third Central Division by Milan (IT), in order to replace the previous location in London (GB), so far. Hence, it remains to be seen whether there will be a further designation, and in such case who will be announced, in the next weeks until June 1, 2023.
