Active Organizations

Alabama Appleseed Center for Law and Justice
Alabama Appleseed is examining research already done in Alabama on the state of judicial elections, and is formulating recommendations for reform that will best address the myriad of competing interests that have produced gridlock on this issue in the past.

Alabama State Bar
With the assistance of the American Judicature Society, the Alabama State Bar convened citizen's conferences on the courts in 1966, 1973, and 1995. In the 1990s, the bar created a task force on judicial selection to study the increase in judicial election campaign expenditures and the appearance of bias associated with campaign contributions, and a task force on judicial elections to make recommendations on judicial campaign conduct.
