After the interviews, the committee will deliberate in a private executive session to consider the applicants’ legal education, writing, reputation in the practice of law and other pertinent information.
The committee will then publicly vote on the nominees for the two vacancies. The committee is tasked with submitting the names of the “three most qualified candidates” for each vacancy — six in total — to Gov. Eric Holcomb, who will make the final selection.
