In recognition of the 50th anniversary of Law Day on Thursday, College of the Canyons will hold student debates and a presentation on the issue of appointed versus elected judges, all with a theme of "Can You Buy Your Own Judge?"

A recent article by the former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor on interest groups and the court system inspired a COC student planning committee to find out more about the issue and then present its findings (including commentary from United States District Court Judge Otis Wright, Jr., and California Superior Court Judge Daniel J. Buckley) in honor of Law Day.

"Justice O'Connor's article highlights why an independent judiciary is so important," says Nicole Lucy, COC Paralegal Studies Department Chair.
