Symposium: Modern Federal Judicial Selection
The Wisconsin Law Review will be hosting its annual symposium, “Modern Federal Judicial Selection,” on October 14, 2016.
Accusations, recriminations, paybacks, and partisan disputes have plagued federal judicial selection and have worsened during the Obama Administration, as manifested by the recent, unprecedented standoff over filling Justice Scalia’s vacancy. This symposium assembles a broad spectrum of judges, scholars, and public officials to evaluate the modern federal judicial selection process. It explores important aspects of the contemporary process, including diversity and the roles of the branches of government during the selection process. This symposium will discuss the history of the selection process, the role of diversity in selection, and suggest future improvements.
