Judicial Nominees Evaluation Commission Recruitment Notice May 13, 2008Applications Available for the 2009 Commission on Judicial Nominees Evaluation
The State Bar seeks active members of the State Bar, former members of the judiciary, and members of the public who are interested in volunteering to serve on the 2009 Commission on Judicial Nominees Evaluation (JNE Commission).
The JNE Commission, established pursuant to Government Code Section 12011.5, evaluates all candidates who are under consideration for a judicial appointment by the governor. It is composed of attorneys and public members (i.e., those who are not lawyers or who are not admitted to practice in California) who represent a broad cross-section of California's diverse legal profession and general population. Appointed by the State Bar's Board of Governors, the volunteer commission cannot nominate or appoint judges; it does, however, thoroughly investigate candidates for judicial appointment while maintaining a code of strict confidentiality. Commissioners serve terms of approximately one-year and may serve up to three consecutive terms.
The application form and information on the commission are available from the State Bar's web site at www.calbar.ca.gov (select links to Attorney Resources/ Committees and Commissions/ Other Entity Appointments) or from the State Bar's Appointments Office: 415/538-2318; fax 415/538- 2255.
