Location:  Topeka, Kansas

Event:  Training

Partners:  Kansas Office of Judicial Administration; American Judicature Society

Trust-based ties with the Office of Judicial Administration allowed the League of Women Voters of Kansas to co-sponsor a day-long training for 60 judicial nominating commissioners from across the state.  The effort was carried out by three entities, the American Judicature Society (AJS), the League of Women Voters, and the Office of Judicial Administration.   Rachel Caufield (AJS) led the discussion, which focused on best practices for nominating commissions, with a particular focus on the impact of diversity on all stages in the judicial selection process.
