The Florida Bar has extended the deadline to accept applications from lawyers interested in serving on a judicial nominating commission (JNC). The Florida Bar has the opportunity to nominate three lawyers for each JNC to the governor for his appointment.

Each appointee will serve a four-year term, commencing July 1, 2024. Applicants must be members of The Florida Bar engaged in the practice of law and a resident of the territorial jurisdiction served by the commission to which the member is applying. Commissioners are not eligible for state judicial office for vacancies filled by the JNC on which they sit for two years following completion of their term.

Applications must be submitted no later than 5:30 p.m., Friday, March 15, 2024. Resumes will not be accepted in lieu of applications. Screening committees of the Board of Governors will review all JNC applications. The Executive Committee will then make recommendations to the Board of Governors.

Persons interested in applying for any of these vacancies may download the new application form to begin the process. If you require assistance, please call Bar headquarters at 850-561-5757 or send an email.
