Curious about the process lawyers go through to become appellate judges? Whether your interest in the state judiciary is historical, observational, vocational or purely theoretical, learn more by attending Demystifying the Judicial Selection Process.


Members of the legal community who have served different roles in the selection process will share their experiences and answer your questions. We encourage lawyers of any age or political leaning to become better informed. Find out if you’ve got what it takes, now or in the future.
