Judicial Application Information
When there is a trial or appellate court vacancy, the official notice will be posted on this site.
Where there is a vacancy to be filled, the Governor's Council for Judicial Appointments reviews and recommends applicants for the governor’s consideration. The governor may then appoint one of the recommended applicants to fill the vacancy. Appellate court judges also must be confirmed by the Legislature.
To apply for a vacancy, interested candidates must complete the application questionnaire and waiver. The application and waiver can be downloaded below.
