These forums are the result of a partnership between the Oakland County Bar Association, the League of Women Voters-Oakland Area, and the Detroit Free Press that sponsors forums in all contested judicial races in Oakland County.

The purpose of this partnership is to disseminate information about judicial candidates in their communities to help voters become more knowledgeable and informed, encouraging participation in Oakland County judicial elections.

The forums are open to the public and are recorded so they may be aired on cable channels in the communities where the races take place. As soon as the recordings are available, they will be uploaded to the OCBA’s YouTube page at

It is important to note that this partnership is nonpartisan, and the respective organizations will not support or oppose candidates prior to the candidate forum. The Detroit Free Press may or may not endorse judicial candidates preceding the elections. The partners of the judicial candidate forums strive to provide factual, nonpartisan information to citizens regarding candidates’ qualifications and views.

Each forum consists of two panelists – one from the Oakland County Bar Association and one from the Detroit Free Press – who ask questions of each of the candidates. A representative of


the League of Women Voters moderates the forums. In each forum, the community is invited to attend and submit questions for responses by the candidates.

Additionally, all candidates have been asked to complete a Judicial Candidate Questionnaire. The completed questionnaires are available on the OCBA website at

OCBA members and community citizens can read the questionnaires exactly as the candidates submitted them.

The Oakland County Bar Association was founded in 1934 and has a long history of service to the legal profession and to the community. With more than 2,800 members, the mission of the Oakland County Bar Association is to serve the professional needs of our members, improve the justice system and ensure the delivery of quality legal services to the public.
