Becoming a Judge

Have you ever considered becoming a judge? The District of Columbia Judicial Nomination Commission (JNC) screens, selects and recommends to the President of the United States candidates for appointment to the Superior Court of the District of Columbia and the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, and it appoints the chief judges for both courts.

On Monday, March 2, 2020 join members of the JNC and judges from the District of Columbia courts for a unique opportunity to learn about the judicial selection process in the District of Columbia, obtain advice on applying to become a judge for the District of Columbia courts and hear firsthand from judges from the District of Columbia courts about various facets of serving on the bench.

This event is free and open to all.

We are pleased to co-sponsor this event along with the National Association of Women Judges, District of Columbia Association of Administrative Law Judges, Greater Washington Area Chapter of the Women Lawyers Division of the National Bar Association (GWAC), Hispanic Bar Association of DC, The South Asian Bar Association of Washington, D.C., the Washington Bar Association, and the Women’s Bar Association of the District of Columbia/ WBA Foundation.
