What are the advantages and disadvantages of having a branch of government where its members are not democratically elected? Would you change the way federal judges are selected?
This discussion question focuses on the selection of federal judges.
Along with your textbook reading for the week, here’s some additional reading to consider about the federal judicial branch:
