Judicial Evaluation

The Pennsylvania Bar Association Judicial Evaluation Commission is responsible for developing and implementing a judicial evaluation process for appellate judicial candidates in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The Commission's procedures include reviewing reports of investigative panels commissioned specifically for each candidate, interviewing each candidate, discussing qualifications, and reaching an agreement upon and issuing ratings for candidates for appellate judicial office.

The Commission strives to provide the voting public with an objective evaluation of candidates who stand for election or retention to the appellate bench in Pennsylvania. Therefore, it is of paramount importance that the Commission inspires public confidence in its recommendations by remaining non-partisan and impartial.
