Todd Curry

Assistant Professor, Political Science

Dr. Curry's primary area of research examines the methods of selection and retention used to staff State Courts of Last Resort in the United States. Specifically, he examines if the various methods of selection have predictable effects on judicial tenure, decisional output and the representative function of State Supreme Court justices. His work challenges the claims of judicial reform groups who seek to end judicial elections and demonstrates that many of their claims simply are not empirically supported.
