The Florida Bar has the opportunity to nominate six lawyers for two vacancies on the Florida Supreme Court Judicial Nominating Commission to Gov. Ron DeSantis for his appointment.

Each appointee will serve the remainder of the four-year term, commencing immediately. 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., Monday, July 31. Resumes will not be accepted in lieu of an application. The screening committee of the Board of Governors will review all of the Supreme Court JNC applications. The Executive Committee will then make recommendations to the Board of Governors.
