League Members Joyce Franklin and Sheila Haney presented a program, “How Diverse is the South Carolina Bench?,” to highlight that in South Carolina, only 22% of state judges using the merit-selection process are women, even though women comprise nearly 35% of lawyers in the state and make up 52% of the state population. Only eight (or 7%) of the 118 judgeships are occupied by a minority judge.
