Judge Snyder is currently a distinguished neutral mediator and arbitrator at The Dispute Resolution Institute, working to resolve conflict across many different areas of legal practice. Additionally, he is an Adjunct Professor at the Temple University Beasley School of Law, and has been named Scholar in Residence at the Fox Business School of Temple University.

He previously served as Assistant Secretary of the Association, and was Grants Committee Chair of the Philadelphia Bar Foundation. On two separate occasions, he served as Co-Chair of the Workers' Compensation Section of the Association.

Judge Snyder graduated from Muhlenberg College and the Temple University School of Law. He is the proud father of Rabbi Josh Snyder, and the grandfather of five. Our newest Chancellor is married to Wendy Sill; they live in Wayne, PA.

Of interest is the fact that Judge Snyder will be the first former sitting judge to assume the role of Chancellor in the entire 218-year history of the Association.
