Courts throughout the United States have the critical role of protecting our rights by interpreting and applying laws fairly and impartially. To do this politics and the influence of money must be kept out of our courts.
For nearly three-quarters of a century, Missouri’s Non-Partisan Court Plan has helped protect the integrity of our courts by attracting high-quality judges who render justice fairly, free from the influences of politics and money. The Missouri Bar is proud of its long history of support for this plan, which became a model for the nation.
We invite you to join The Missouri Bar to educate the public
about Missouri’s court system and merit selection of judges. Here, you’ll
find useful talking points and speech outlines to help you speak with
legislators, colleagues and civic groups about keeping politics and money out
of our courts. We welcome your participation.
