Judicial Selection The Cross-Evolution of French and American Practices



Judicial Selection The Cross-Evolution of French and American Practices by Jacqueline L. Lafon, Mary L. Volcansek

This volume is a comprehensive comparative study of the development of systems for naming judges in two nations, over a period of three centuries. It is designed to confront the origins, both normative and political, that affected the evolution of the systems now used in the United States and France. This book places in normative and historical context discussions about how best to recruit judges, and it explores shifts in priorities for judicial offices and their implications.
