2023 Judicial Nominating Commission Nominations to be Made

Judicial Nominating Commissions: Applications are being accepted for attorney vacancies for each of the Third, Fifth, Seventh, Eighth, 10th, 14th, 16th, and 20th Circuit JNCs.  The Florida Bar has the opportunity to nominate three lawyers for each Judicial Nominating Commission to Gov. Ron DeSantis for his appointment. Each appointee will serve a four-year term, commencing July 1, 2023. 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 will be accepted until the minimum number required has been received. Resumes will not be accepted in lieu of an application. Screening committees of the Board of Governors will review all JNC applications. The Executive Committee will then make recommendations to the Board of Governors.
