Become a Part of Merit Selection

Access to Justice depends on a network of courts staffed by fair and impartial judges. To find the best candidates for the bench, Arizona relies on commissions to screen, interview and select candidates for submission to the Governor. 

Members of these commissions apply to the State Bar of Arizona Board of Governors, which in turn screens, interviews and recommends them to the Governor. This tiered process is designed to choose the best judges on the merit of professionalism and experience.
