Model judicial selection provisions
24 pages. No updates available.
From the preface to the 2008 edition: First compiled in 1985 and revised in 1994, the American Judicature Society’s Model Judicial Selection Provisions offer exemplary language for establishing judicial nomination and evaluation processes of the highest quality. In early 2007, with the guidance of AJS staff, an outstanding advisory committee of members of the AJS Board of Directors began the task of updating the model provisions. The 2008 revisions represent American Judicature Society policy as to the “best practices” in selecting, retaining, and evaluating judges.
