2021 District of Columbia Judicial & Bar Conference
Addy Schmitt will present, as part of a panel, "So You Want to be a Judge on the District of Columbia Courts?" on April 23, a public forum to provide information about the judicial application, nomination, and appointment process for the District of Columbia Court of Appeals and the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. The forum presents a rare opportunity for lawyers who aspire to be a judge to meet and hear from members of the Judicial Nomination Commission and the Committee on the Selection and Tenure of Magistrate Judges, as well as judges from the District of Columbia Superior Court. The panel will discuss qualifications for judicial office, the application process, and, for associate judges, the nomination and confirmation process. The forum will also provide an opportunity to hear firsthand from District of Columbia Superior Court judges about various facets of serving on the bench.
