Judicial Council, ABA House need volunteers

The State Bar is seeking applicants for two positions on the Judicial Council and six positions in the ABA House of Delegates. The deadline for applications is Feb. 1.

The three-year Judicial Council positions begin Sept. 15. Meetings are held six to seven times a year with an annual time commitment of about 300 hours, and members are reimbursed for travel. In making the appointments, the board of governors will consider applicants' leadership skills and ability to represent the lawyer perspective on the council.
