The Florida Bar has extended the deadline to apply for a seat on the Third Circuit Judicial Nominating Commission to September 9.

The Bar must nominate three lawyers to the governor for his appointment to fill one lawyer vacancy on the JNC. The appointee will serve the remainder of a four-year term, commencing immediately upon appointment.

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.
