Lawyer representatives for the United States District Court, District of Nevada assist the Court with improving the administration of justice. Lawyer representatives provide vital input to the Court on a myriad of issues affecting the operations of the federal courts, including but not limited to rule changes; development of new programs; planning of conferences; the expenditure of funds from the non-appropriated account. Lawyer representatives also assist with educating members of the Bar generally about conferences and obtaining feedback for future conferences; promoting and judging the Ninth Circuit high school civics contest and local civics outreach; and finding ways to improve the general dialogue between the Court and Bar to make improvements in the judicial system.

The Court has nine lawyer representatives who ensure the lines of communication stay open between the Court and the Bar. The Court holds quarterly meetings with the lawyer representatives and informal meetings as needed. Each year, the Court solicits applications to fill vacant lawyer representative terms, which are three years in duration. The terms are staggered so that one-third of the lawyer representatives are selected each year.
