August Citizen’s Forum-Selection of Judges

Judges are important. Think Supreme Court. Think about yourself or your child in court for traffic violations.

Today there is legislation in Harrisburg that proposes to use merit selection for all state-wide judges. The argument is that merit selection is the judicial selection system that best ensures that qualified individuals will reach the bench without the problematic influence of money on the selection process. Merit selection uses an independent bipartisan citizens nominating commission composed of men and women from across the Commonwealth, non-lawyers and lawyers, from diverse occupational, racial and ethnic backgrounds.

August 14, 2017 at the Tredyffrin Public Library. Doors open at 7. Presentation starts at 7:30. Bring a friend.
