We are excited to announce that the application for the Judicial Institute's Fellows Clinic is now open. The Judicial Institute is committed to the diversification of Washington's courts. *Please share widely with your minority bar associations so we can ensure a more accessible path to the judiciary. *

We hope many of your members will consider applying.

About the Clinic:
Fellows will participate in two-day in-person interactive sessions at Seattle University School of Law on March 13-14, 2022, designed to provide practical knowledge to help legal professionals from a variety of backgrounds become judges.  Taught by instructors who are judges, minority bar judicial evaluation committee members, and appointing authorities, the clinic will address topics including judicial ethics, the judicial appointment process, and preparing for a judicial campaign. We will be following SU's public health protocols for the in-person clinic.

In addition, Fellows will be assigned judicial mentors who will provide one-on-one feedback and guidance. At the end of the program, Fellows should have the skills and information to begin seeking a position on the bench. Fellows will also receive general and ethics CLE credits.

Application Process:
Interested applicants with eight years or more of legal experience should submit a letter of interest, resume, and an application. The application materials are due November 15, 2021 and available HERE.
