Eliminating the Gavel Gap: Increasing Judicial Diversity in Minnesota
For the first time, researchers have gathered data on the demographics of state court judges in all 50 states. They found troubling differences between the race and gender composition of the courts and the communities they serve. We call this disparity The Gavel Gap.
Join The Minneapolis-St. Paul Lawyer Chapter of the American Constitution Society, ACLU, Hispanic Bar Association, Lavender Bar Association and Ramsey County Bar Association as we discuss the Gavel Gap report, why judicial diversity matters, things to consider before becoming a judge, and how to apply to be a judge.
