Qualified applicants who are interested in serving as a Ninth Circuit Judicial Conference Lawyer Representative are invited to submit an application to the United States District Court, Central District of California, by June 2, 2023. Submit completed applications to LawyerReps_CACD@cacd.uscourts.gov. The selected Lawyer Representatives will be representative of the entire district and reflect the diversity of lawyers practicing before the Court.
Judges of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and of each of the 15 district courts of the circuit appoint lawyer representatives. Lawyer representatives serve as a liaison between the federal bench and bar, fostering open communications between judges and lawyers and providing support and advice in the functioning of the courts within the circuit. Attorneys serving as lawyer representatives work closely with district, bankruptcy and magistrate judges in their home districts. They participate as members on various committees and help plan local district conferences, often serving as speakers or facilitators.
