The Alaska Judicial Council has dual constitutional responsibilities of nominating candidates for judicial vacancies and submitting reports and recommendations to the State Supreme Court and Legislature.
Following an introductory section outlining the Council's purposes, membership, and organization, this report discusses judicial selection and evaluation activities in 1991-1992. The second report outlines the reports and recommendations submitted by the Council. Major reports written during this period covered topics including rural alternative dispute resolution, a child visitation mediation pilot project, the Alaska Sentencing Commission, and document imaging. Work in progress for 1993 will deal with rural justice issues and offer follow-up recommendations related to the Sentencing Commission. The appendixes include a current listing of statutory and constitutional law affecting the Judicial Council; a log of judicial applicants, nominees, and appointees; a log of sitting judges and their retention election dates; and summaries of Council procedures for judicial selection and evaluation. Other appendixes summarize the Council's major reports submitted during 1991 and 1992. 13 appendixes
