The Iowa Judicial Branch released information about the judicial retention vote awhile back.  In it they described what makes a good judge:

  • Integrity – honest, upright and committed to the rule of law
  • Professional Competence – keen intellect, extensive legal knowledge and strong writing abilities
  • Judicial Temperament – neutral, decisive, respectful and composed
  • Experience – strong record of professional excellence
  • Service – committed to public service and the administration of justice
