Mitt Romney and Judicial SelectionMitt Romney was recently criticized for losing faith in Massachusetts's so-called merit system for selecting judges while he was governor. This teleforum will canvass some of the contemporary viewpoints about merit selection and explain why it has declined in popularity in recent years relative to other methods of selecting judges.


  • Prof. Brian T. Fitzpatrick, Vanderbilt University Law School

Call begins at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
