Four nationally known experts on judicial selection will participate in a panel discussion April 21 at Indiana University Maurer School of Law in the Moot Court Room.
"There are at least five methods of judicial selection used among the various states, and we will explore the pros and cons of each," said Charles Geyh, associate dean for research and John F. Kimberling Professor of Law.
The panel consists of Chris Bonneau, associate professor of political science at the University of Pittsburgh and co-author of “In Defense of Judicial Elections”; Roy A. Schotland, a professor emeritus at Georgetown University Law Center who has written prolifically on all methods of judicial selection; and Eileen Braman, associate professor of political science at IU, whose work has explored issues relating to institutional legitimacy and public support of the courts.
This is final event of the semester in the law school's Law and Society series. The program is from 4 to 6 p.m., and is free and open to the public. Indiana continuing legal education credit has been applied for.
