The Missouri Bar has been evaluating judges appointed under the Non-Partisan Court Plan and providing that information to voters since 1948. The Missouri Bar currently offers administrative and financial support to the independent, statewide Judicial Performance Review Committee. The state’s formal judicial performance review process was created in 2008 and revised in 2016 by order of the Supreme Court of Missouri. The Missouri judicial performance review process was developed after a committee studied model rules and best practices from the American Bar Association and more than 20 judicial performance evaluation systems in the nation. The current judicial performance review process in Missouri was adopted June 15, 2016, when the Supreme Court of Missouri issued an order revising Rule 10 which leaves judging the judges to the voters and fosters consistency in the process with the implementation of one, statewide review committee.
