The Infinity Project gratefully accepted the invitation to co-sponsor the symposium “Who Decides? Picking Judges in the 21st Century.”
“[P]rogress does not occur automatically, but requires a concerted effort to change habitual modes of thinking and acting.”
~U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
A diverse group of scholars, advocates, politicians, judges, and lawyers provided opinions and insights on big picture issues and examined important nuances related to judicial selection—nuances that are not always visible to the public at large. While debates ensued, a consensus emerged around the aim of ensuring uncompromising quality, so citizens are best served by the administration of justice.
