Applications are being accepted for two lawyer vacancies for the 3rd  and 16th Circuit Judicial Nominating Commissions.  The Florida Bar has the opportunity to nominate six lawyers  to the Governor for his appointment.  Each appointee will serve a four-year term, commencing July 1, 2022. 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 2 years following completion of their term.
