Event Details

Judges, Money, and Politics:

The State of Judicial Elections in Minnesota


As a result of recent U.S Supreme Court decisions, the election of state judges is becoming more partisan and expensive.  Some fear that Minnesota’s courts are in danger of becoming a battleground of big-money campaign contributors and partisan operatives.  To head off this possibility, reformers have proposed to change the process of electing judges in Minnesota to maintain an impartial judiciary.  Leading experts and observers of Minnesota judicial elections will assess the risk of partisan elections and whether reform is justified.  

Please join us for a lively conversation with panelists:

Eric Magnuson, former Chief Justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court 

Gary Borgendale, Local Ministry Director for AM980 KKMS radio

Sarah Walker, Chief Operating Officer at 180 Degrees, Inc.

Greg Wersal, Attorney in private practice 

The event will be moderated by Professor Larry Jacobs
