What are best practices to get more women in judicial offices?

Posted February 18, 2019

Women's representation in judicial positions is vitally important for a number of reasons, yet we know relatively little about the best practices to get more women into the judicial pipeline. This project seeks to examine the rules and norms around the election and appointment of women to judicial positions - at all levels - to develop an understanding of what practices lead to more women in judicial offices. RepresentWomen interns have done some initial research on this project but have found it challenging to understand the intent and the implications of the systems identified. It would be invaluable to have attorneys involved in defining the scope of this project, developing the methodology for data collection, and reviewing the information collected. Finally, it would be great to have a team of attorneys involved in crafting strategies to increase women in judicial offices that are grounded in an analysis of best practices.
