Kansas University law professor Stephen J. Ware is an expert on the process of judicial selection in Kansas and other states. His research shows that Kansas is at the undemocratic extreme end of the spectrum in concentrating power in members of the bar when it comes to selecting judges for our state’s highest courts.
This week Ware will speak at two events in Wichita.
The first event is titled “Are you a Second-Class Citizen? Selecting the Lawmaking Judges of Kansas.” The free event is sponsored by The Federalist Society and hosted by Americans for Prosperity Foundation. It is on Thursday August 5th from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm at the Lionel D. Alford Library located at 3447 S. Meridian in Wichita.
The second event is the regular weekly luncheon meeting of the Wichita Pachyderm Club on Friday August 6. This meeting is also open to the public. It costs $10, which includes lunch. More information about this meeting is available at Kansas judicial selection expert to address Pachyderms.
