Any takers? 🤓📚ANNOUNCEMENT: Lawyer Applicants Sought For Florida Board of Bar Examiners; Deadline March 22

Lawyer applicants are being sought to fill two vacancies on the Florida Board of Bar Examiners.

A joint screening committee of Florida Bar Board of Governors members and Board of Bar Examiners members will recommend six nominees for two lawyer vacancies at its May 24, 2019, meeting. The nominations will then be forwarded to the Supreme Court to fill two five-year terms commencing Nov. 1, 2019, and expiring Oct. 31, 2024.

Lawyer members must have been a member of The Florida Bar for at least five years. They must be practicing lawyers with scholarly attainments and have an affirmative interest in legal education and requirements for admission to the Bar. Appointment or election to the bench at any level of the court system will disqualify any applicant. Law professors or trustees are ineligible.

Board members of the Bar Examiners must be able to attend approximately 10 meetings a year in various Florida locations. Members should be willing and able to devote the equivalent of three to four days’ work a month, or up to 350 or more hours per year on Board business, depending on committee assignments. Travel expenses connected with the meetings and examinations are reimbursed.

Lawyers interested in applying for this vacancy may download the Application for Special Appointment from The Florida Bar’s website (www.floridabar.org/about/bog/bog007/) or call Bar headquarters at 850-561-5757 to obtain the application form.
