Beckerman was sworn in as Oregon’s newest federal magistrate judge in January, her investiture took place on June 5 in a ceremony that featured music, laughter, and which specifically welcomed the participation of children. Presiding Judge Ann Aiken noted that Magistrate Judge Beckerman was the first new female federal judge in Oregon of the 21st century. A tribute to those first women lawyers and judges who paved the way was presented and reprinted below:
