Panel To Discuss Selection Of Appellate Judges

CREATED Mar 11, 2014 - UPDATED: Mar 11, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Vanderbilt Law School is hosting a public session later this month to discuss how state appellate court judges are selected in Tennessee and how that process might be improved.

The free event will be held on March 21 from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Flynn Auditorium in the law school.

It will feature a panel of four distinguished lawyers involved in the judicial selection debate.

The panel is part of a two-day conference focusing on how the method of selecting state judges affects judicial decision making.

Besides the law school, other sponsors of the conference are the American Constitution Society and American Judicature Society.
