The California Commission on Access to Justice is seeking attorneys and judges to fill five two-year positions. The 23-member commission, whose members also include academic, business, labor and community leaders, was established to explore ways to improve access to civil justice for low- and moderate-income Californians.

It was instrumental in establishing the $10 million Equal Access Fund for civil legal services to the indigent and works closely with the Judicial Council to improve access to the courts.

The commission meets bi-monthly with three meetings by conference call and three in person. The State Bar appoints 10 members and the remaining 13 are appointed by other statewide entities. Members may serve two consecutive years.

Applications are available in this issue of the California Bar Journal (pages 17-18) or from the bar’s Office of the Secretary, 180 Howard St., San Francisco 94105-1639; 415/538-2299 or (fax) 415/538-2561. The application deadline is March 1.
