Applications may be downloaded from The Florida Bar's website at The inclusion of a photograph is encouraged. Please do not submit three-ring binders.

Because there are several vacancies at this time, please specify for which vacancy your application should be considered.

If you have submitted an application to the JNC on or after February 1, 2011, you may alternatively deliver a letter requesting the JNC to consider your prior application. Because there are new JNC Commissioners, you must deliver five (5) copies of your prior application along with your letter by the deadline set forth above.

NOTE TO APPLICANTS: In order to assist the Judicial Nominating Commission in its review of applications, all questions in the application must be fully and completely answered. In addition, applications should include current and accurate contact information for judges, co-counsel, opposing counsel and references where requested as those individuals will be contacted. If there is requested information missing from an application, the Judicial Nominating Commission will consider the applicant's lack of effort in submitting a complete application.
