Judge Selection

Judge Selection: Merit vs. Election We'll examine the long-running debate on whether North Carolina judges should continue to campaign for election or be appointed to the bench by merit selection. We'll hear both sides of the debate as well as an historical overview of the process in the past and proposals for changing the way we select judges in the future. Join us for a look at the selection of judges.
