Chapter 8 (cont.) Selection Processes for judges: In the federal court system, all the judges are appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate. o The appointment process is relatively easy on paper. Then, the nominee is sent to the Senate for approval. o After the Senate receives the nominee a hearing is held and makes a recommendation to the senate, where a mandatory vote is needed to confirm the nomination. In state court systems the selection of judges differs from state to state. o In some states all judges are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the state legislature. o In other states partisan elections are used to choose judges. Although in some states you are put onto the ballot without party affiliation (nonpartisan). o Lastly in some states judges are selected based on a subjective definition of merit. Responsibilities of courtroom work groups: The courtroom work group is made up of individuals who are involved with the defendant from the time he/she is arrested until sentencing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
