The Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit invites applications from highly qualified candidates for two Bankruptcy Judgeships for the Central District of California. The positions are available immediately.
The selection process may take up to 18 months to complete. The official duty stations for these positions are in Riverside and Santa Barbara, California. The term of office is 14 years with a possible renewal appointment subject to reappointment procedures.
The Court of Appeals uses an open and competitive selection process. All applications are screened by a Merit Screening Committee, which selects a limited number of applicants for interview and contacts their references. From the initial group of interviewees, selected applicants will be referred for further interview by a Judicial Council committee, which then submits a recommendation of nomination to the Court of Appeals.
Basic qualifications for consideration include admission to practice before the highest court of at least one state, the District of Columbia, or the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico; membership in good standing in every bar in which membership is held; and at least five years of legal practice or other qualifying legal experience.
