A Seminar on Judicial Selection

This is a contentious time for the judicial selection process. Some states elect judges, some appoint them, and others employ a mix of the two methods. The advent of open election campaigning raises ethical issues.

 The Indiana Law Blog, the blog of the state’s bar association reports that the University of Indiana-Indianapolis Law School is offering a seminar on judicial selection conducted by Professor Joel Schumm and Superior Court Judge Timothy Oakes and including several prominent judges as guests. One session of the course includes an open CLE seminar. Here is the blog’s report on the course. It includes a link to the course outline.
