Abstract

In the ongoing debate over the best method for choosing judges, the focus has been on the perceived drawbacks of judicial election without commensurate consideration of either the advantages of popular elections or the disadvantages of the commission system-usually styled the "Missouri plan" or "merit selection." One such consideration is the means of defining the judicial power.
