Judge David E. Stucki was recently elected by the International Association of Youth and Family Judges and Magistrates (IAYFJM) as its deputy-president. Judge Stucki is a current representative of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) and served as its president from 2013 to 2014. His election as deputy-president of IAYFJM will make his seat the only U.S. seat on the 17-nation IAYFJM council. His new position will see him leading efforts to create and maintain meaningful collaborations between nations and international judges to better protect youth and their families across the globe. Stucki served on the Stark County Family Court in Canton, Ohio for 18 years before his retirement in 2011. He is a past president of the Ohio Association of Juvenile Court Judges and is the current chairman of the Governor’s Council on Juvenile Justice. A native Ohioan, Stucki attended the University of Akron for both his undergraduate work and to earn his J.D.

After completing his education in 1985, he began his career by serving as a member of the Fairless Local Board of Education and the Canton Regional Board of Review of the Industrial Commission of Ohio. While subsequently privately practicing law, he was the Wilmot Village Solicitor and the Westark Village Prosecutor. Later in his career, he would serve on the Federal Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice and on the Global Advisory Committee through the U.S. Justice Department. Judge David E. Stucki was elected deputy-president of IAYFJM at the World Congress on Justice for Children, held during the final week of May at the UNESCO House in Paris. This event, in addition to serving as a venue for elections and making new appointments, brought professionals and judges from around the world together to discuss important policy and practice developments in the field that advance crucial protections for children and their families.
