Curious about the process lawyers go through to become appellate judges? Whether your interest in the state judiciary is vocational, historical, observational or purely theoretical, learn more by attending “Demystifying the Judicial Selection Process.” Members of the legal community who have served different roles in this process will share their experiences and answer your questions. How do courts benefit from diversity? What statutory criteria apply? We encourage lawyers of any age or political leaning to become better informed. Find out if you’ve got what it takes, now or in the future.

Confirmed speakers include John Trimble, managing partner, Lewis Wagner, LLP, and former member of the Judicial Nominating & Qualifications Commissions; the Hon. Jane Magnus-Stinson, judge of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana and former counsel to Gov. Bayh; Christine Keck, director of government relations for Energy Systems Group and former member of the Judicial Nominating & Qualifications Commissions; and the Hon. Martha Wentworth, judge, Indiana Tax Court.

This program is not limited to potential applicants for the next or any other judicial opening, but in an effort to provide greater access for those who might consider applying, people who attend this session will have access to two confidential support services offered by the ISBA at no additional cost:

1. At your request attorney volunteers will proofread some or all or your application and provide feedback.

2. Also upon request, the ISBA will conduct a confidential and realistic mock interview.
