Oklahoma Supreme Court Judicial Selection Reform

An earlier post noted that Oklahoma is considering changes to its judicial selection system.  This upcoming event in Tulsa looks very good because it features a member of the Oklahoma Judicial Nominating Commission and two bright and interesting academic experts, Professors Brian Fitzpatrick (Vanderbilt Law) and Chris Bonneau (U. Pittsburgh).

Another reason to expect this will be a good event: it promises discussion of all three of the common judicial selection methods in the country: "Oklahoma Supreme Court Judicial Selection Reform: Elections vs. Appointment vs. Nominating Committee."  These tend to be much better discussions than discussions considering only two of the three.

Good of the Federalist Society, particularly its Tulsa Lawyers Chapter, to host it.
