Judicial philosophy often plays a role in judicial appointments and elections. Members of the public ask candidates about their approach to the decision-making and law-making functions of the courts. The panel will delve into the ethical implications and challenges of serving on a court whose primary functions are error correction, statutory and regulatory interpretation, determinations of public policy, and development of common law. In discussing their personal philosophies and the challenges of deciding cases in panels, the panelists will also emphasize the impact of collegiality among judges, staff, law clerks, and appellate practitioners. Moderated by Prof. Verónica Gonzales-Zamora.
