CJA Application Period is OPEN


Everyone currently on the CJA Panel for the Middle District of North Carolina serves three year terms. A member of the CJA Panel may be considered for immediate reappointment to the panel following expiration of his or her term; however, they must satisfy the same qualifications and complete the same application process as new applicants. Under the CJA Plan, there are 75 panel attorney slots available.   There is also a Training Panel for attorneys who do not have the requisite experience or wish to eventually become members of the CJA Panel.  Participation on the Training Panel does not guarantee a place on the regular panel. The Court is committed to increasing the diversity of the applicant pool and encourages qualified female and minority lawyers to apply for positions.

The projected timetable for the application process is as follows:

  • Deadline for submission of CJA Panel applications:  July 12, 2024
  • Application review process by the Selection Committee:  Summer of 2024
  • Effective date of appointments:  January 1, 2025
  • CJA Application

Applications must be submitted in a single PDF file by July 12, 2024 to CJA

Please direct any questions to John Brubaker, Clerk of Court, at (336)-332-6000.
