This article reports the results of a national survey of state appellate judges' attitudes toward court reform issues. Strong support is found for the Missouri Plan for judicial selection, for the abolition of nonlawyer judges, for continuing judicial education, and for professionalized court administration. Less support is found for consolidation of multiple, specialized tribunals into courts of general jurisdiction. Overall, respondents provide a positive assessment of their respective state court systems. Court financing is identified as the problem most urgently in need of attention, with judicial selection, court management, and structural reform also eliciting significant levels of concern.
