Deadline Extended for JNC Nomination Applications!
The Florida Bar nominates six lawyers for each of the state’s 26 judicial nominating commissions to the governor for appointment. The Bar’s Board of Governors wants all interested attorneys to apply because it is critical to have a wide range of attorneys, from diverse practice areas, geographic locations, and demographics, to select from.
Applications must be submitted no later than 5:30 p.m., Thursday, March 24.
Each appointee will serve a four-year term, commencing July 1. Applicants must be members of The Florida Bar engaged in the practice of law and a resident of the territorial jurisdiction served by the JNC to which the member is applying. Commissioners are ineligible for state judicial office for vacancies filled by the JNC on which they sit for two years following completion of their terms.
The Board of Governors’ screening committees reviews all JNC applications. The Executive Committee then makes recommendations to the Board of Governors.
