Judge4Yourself.com is a service of the Judicial Candidates Rating Coalition, whose members are:
- The Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association
- The Norman S. Minor Bar Association
- The Ohio Womens Bar Association
- The Cuyahoga Criminal Defense Lawyers Association
Dozens of lawyers and others from these groups volunteer up to 4 days every year to review candidates’ questionnaires, interview candidates, share information and develop candidate ratings.
Some Coalition participants are self-employed or work in small firms. Others work for large firms, local companies or government. Our community representatives have worked with people or businesses that are affected court decisions.
Our ratings tell voters, in simple language, whether we think that a candidate will make a good judge. Although our perspectives vary, we agree that highly qualified, fair and respectful judges are essential for our community.
