Judicial Selection Forum at Hamline

The Ramsey County Bar Association and Hamline University School of Law will co-sponsor a forum on the topic of judicial selection on Monday, February 25, 2008 at Hamline University School of Law, Annette K. Levine Moot Court Room, from 6:00-7:30 p.m.

David Schultz, professor in the Graduate School of Management at Hamline University, will serve as moderator. Professor Schultz will provide an overview of the current system used in Minnesota to select judges and some alternative systems being proposed at the legislature this year. Philip Carruthers, Assistant Ramsey County Attorney, Director of the Prosecution Division and Mark Gehan, an attorney with Collins, Buckley, Sauntry & Haugh and member of the Quie Commission, will discuss whether the current system needs to be changed, and if so, the advantages and disadvantages of alternative proposals.

Please join us for what promises to be a lively discussion of this timely and important issue. For more information, please contact Cheryl Dalby at cheryl@ramseybar.org or 651-222-0846.
