About Us

YourMissouriJudges.org is here to provide voters with accurate information about the judicial process in Missouri. With information about each of the current judges and the Judicial Performance Review Committee’s findings, you can stay up-to-date on your Missouri judges. One of our priorities is educating people about the Missouri Plan, a nonpartisan, merit-based judicial selection plan that is a model for the nation.

The future of Missouri’s courts depends upon an informed public, knowledgeable of the structure of Missouri’s court system and the principles it is built upon. The Missouri Bar produces this website as part of its mission to increase the public’s understanding of Missouri’s courts and judiciary. The Missouri Bar is a statewide organization that is dedicated to improving the legal profession, the law and the administration of justice for all Missourians. Created in 1944 by order of the Supreme Court of Missouri, it serves all 30,000 of Missouri’s practicing attorneys. The Missouri Bar provides a wide range of services and resources to its members, as well as the media, educators and the citizens of Missouri.

What are the characteristics of a good judge? And how can people be assured that a judge is, in fact, doing a good job? These are good questions and Missourians now have an easy way to learn about the performance of many of the judges we have entrusted to resolve everything from property disputes to life and death issues.

Through the work of the Judicial Performance Review Committee – a statewide panel composed of lawyers, non-lawyers and retired judges – Missourians have access to in-depth analysis of the work being done by judges serving under the state’s nonpartisan method of judicial selection and retention.
