NANCY E. RICE, 66

Chief Justice, Colorado Supreme Court

Nancy Rice was appointed to the Colorado Supreme Court in 1998 and became Chief Justice in 2014, putting her in charge of a judicial branch with 324 judges, 74 magistrates, 4,000 staff members, and has an annual budget of more than $534 million.

Rice says the Chief Justice’s work touches everyone. “Most Coloradans will experience the courts during their lives, be it by way of a speeding ticket, divorce, as a civil litigant, or even a juror,” she says. “The Chief Justice is ultimately responsible for ensuring that the courts are fair, accessible to all and follow the rule of law.”
