Forum on Judicial Selection in Rhode Island

There is a great event this Thursday sponsored by the United States District Court for the District of Rhode Island, the Federal Bench/Bar Committee of the Rhode Island Bar Association and the Roger Williams University School of Law.

The event, entitled “Judicial Selection” will examine how judges are chosen across the country, comparing Rhode Island’s distinctive “merit selection process,” to the blended approach used at the federal level, to the many varying approaches in the states, including partisan judicial elections. The panel will also discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the approaches.

The forum will be moderated by District Court Chief Judge Mary M. Lisi and will be from 700pm to 900pm at the United States Courthouse (Courtroom 1, 3rd floor) located at 1 Exchange Terrace in downtown Providence.

The panelists will include Professor Michael Gerhardt, University of North Carolina School of Law; Alan Rudlin, Esq., Senior Partner, Hunton & Williams, Richmond, VA.; and Professor Michael Yelnosky, Roger Williams University School of Law
