MSBA Judicial Selection Policy adopted by the Assembly December 12, 2014:

The MSBA supports a system of judicial selection that is as free from political influence as possible and that may include, but not be limited to, the following: (1) initial screening of candidates by a merit selection commission; (2) appointment by the Governor from a list of candidates recommended by the merit selection commission; (3) evaluation of each judge's performance by a nonpartisan evaluation commission and the result of the judge’s evaluation made known; and (4) the retention of each judge decided by the voters.
