spacer.gif (810 bytes)

The State Bar is seeking applicants for six appointments as State Bar delegates to the ABA House of Delegates and one appointment to fill the vacancy for the State Bar’s Young Lawyer delegate to the ABA. The Young Lawyer delegate must be less than 35 years old before his or her term begins, i.e., June 10, 2000. The regular State Bar delegates each will serve a two-year term, commencing at the close of the 2000 ABA Annual Meeting (i.e., July 12, 2000) and expiring at the close of the 2002 ABA Annual Meeting. The Young Lawyer term will be effective upon appointment (i.e., June 10, 2000) and will expire at the close of the 2001 ABA Annual Meeting. All delegates are expected to attend the mid-year and annual ABA meetings; on occasion, to participate in conference calls prior to the mid-year or annual meeting; and are required to pay their own travel expenses. Delegates may be reappointed to additional terms as long as they meet eligibility requirements.

Each of the six regular delegates whose term expires this year is eligible for reappointment. In making the appointments, the Board of Governors will consider each applicant’s participation in ABA activities, working knowledge of the ABA House of Delegates, and understanding of the current issues before the House of Delegates. For delegates who are seeking reappointment, attendance at the mid-year and annual meetings will be considered.

The deadline to apply is Monday, Feb. 14, 2000. Applicants are to submit the 2000-2001 State Bar application (available at right), including a statement regarding their ABA and local bar activities and a resume. Applications are to be submitted to the Office of the Secretary, State Bar of California, 180 Howard Street, San Francisco CA 94105-1639.
