The King County Bar Association hosts judicial candidate forums during election seasons as a service to the legal community and the voters of King County.  The following is an archive of some past programs that we have available.  


Working to improve the administration of justice is an important part of the King County Bar Association’s mission.

KCBA has evaluated and rated judicial performance since 1948 through surveys of current judicial officers, ratings for those seeking appointment or election to the bench, and monitoring of fair campaign practices and hosting of candidate forums.
