How the District of Columbia Gets its Judges
How the District of Columbia Gets its Judges

This publication, which updates the 2005 Guide, is in two parts. Part One describes the District of Columbia’s judicial appointment and reappointment process for both trial judges on the Superior Court of the District of Columbia (Superior Court) and appellate judges on the District of Columbia Court of Appeals (Court of Appeals). Part Two narrows that focus to cover only the Superior Court. In order to illuminate the various pathways to becoming a trial judge in the District of Columbia, Part Two provides detail, based on Council for Court Excellence research, about the professional backgrounds of the 150 persons who have been recommended by the District of Columbia Judicial Nomination Commission for nomination to the Superior Court between 1994 and August 2011.
