|So you want to be a Judge?
The Arizona Supreme Court Commission on Minorities in the Judiciary, through its Diversity Workgroup, has developed this web site to promote judicial diversity in Arizona. It is intended to encourage and assist minority attorneys who are contemplating judicial careers by providing a comprehensive source of information regarding judicial vacancies and the application process. Because our state’s various minority bar organizations play a crucial role in recruiting, encouraging and assisting qualified minority applicants, this site also strives to provide useful information to those organizations while alerting applicants to the potential help they may receive therefrom. In this context, the Commission encourages Arizona’s minority bar associations to borrow ideas from each other, to the extent feasible, in promoting qualified judicial applicants.
Finally, this site is intended to augment, not replace, the practical information provided to potential applicants as part of the Chris Nakamura Judicial Appointment Workshops. Along with presenting the Workshop at the Minority Bar Convention (April 2013 Handouts), the Commission is open to requests to co-host stand-alone presentations.
