On the federal side: Ninth Circuit Seeks Candidates for Appellate Lawyer Representatives
The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit is seeking applicants from among the federal appellate bar to serve as Appellate Lawyer Representatives to the Ninth Circuit Judicial Conference. Those selected will serve three year terms commencing October 1, 2016, during which they will participate in meetings throughout the circuit, coordinate activities with District Lawyer Representatives, and attend and participate in the Ninth Circuit Judicial Conference, an annual gathering of federal judges, attorneys, agency representatives and court staff. This is a hard-working committee, so familiarity with this court's rules of practice and the ability to serve on one or more sub-committees will be important.
To be considered, applicants should submit a resume of no more than two pages and a brief statement of interest and qualifications, with emphasis on their appellate experience, particularly in the Ninth Circuit. The material should be mailed to Molly Dwyer, Clerk of Court, James R. Browning United States Courthouse, 95 Seventh St., San Francisco, CA 94103, or sent via email to email@example.com. The deadline to submit materials is September 6, 2016.
