Governor Ted Strickland has appointed UC Law’s Marianna Brown Bettman to the Ohio Judicial Appointments Recommendation Panel. Officially announced last week, Professor Bettman will serve as chair of one of the two recommendation panels.
The Ohio Judicial Appointments Recommendation Panel evaluates the qualifications of applicants for judicial vacancies and then makes non-binding recommendations to the Governor for appointment based on their evaluations.
Professor Bettman has served as a professor of clinical law at the University of Cincinnati since 1999. She had previously served as a judge for the Ohio First District Court of Appeals from 1993-1999. Bettman also writes a monthly newspaper column, Legally Speaking, which appears in the American Israelite and the Cincinnati Herald. She received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Cincinnati in 1966 and her law degree from the University of Cincinnati College of Law in 1977.
