CJA Panel Application Information

INFORMATION REGARDING THE REVISED CJA PLAN FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF NORTH CAROLINA

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:

  • Application review process by the Selection Committee:  Summer of 2022
  • Effective date of appointments:  January 1, 2023

Applications must be submitted by July 15, 2022 to CJA_Applications@ncmd.uscourts.gov.

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