The United States District Court for the District of Nevada is accepting applications for Lawyer Representatives. 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; and the expenditure of funds from the non-appropriated account.
To be considered for one of these positions, you must be: 1) admitted to practice in the U.S. District Court of Nevada and actively involved in federal practice; 2) interested in the purpose and framework of the Circuit Conference and willing and able to actively contribute to the planning of the District Conference; and 3) willing to assist in implementing conference and district court programs with local bar associations. Lawyer Representatives are also expected to attend the Ninth Circuit Judicial Conference.
In addition to the above criteria, a goal of the Court in the selection of Lawyer Representatives is to ensure the chosen attorneys represent a cross-section of practitioners in federal court which specialize in civil, criminal, appellate and bankruptcy matters. Lawyer Representatives are elected to serve a three-year term.
If you are interested in serving as a Lawyer Representative, please submit a letter of interest detailing your federal experience and reasons you would like to be considered. Letters of interest may be emailed to: NVD_LawyerRep@nvd.uscourts.gov, or hand delivered or mailed to: Ms. Debra K. Kempi, District Court Executive, Lloyd D. George United States Courthouse 333 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Suite 1334, Las Vegas, Nevada 89101
Letters of interest must be received by the close of Friday, May 17, 2019. A list of finalists will be selected by the Court and submitted to the Board of Governors of the State Bar of Nevada for the final selections. Please contact Ms. Kempi at (702) 464-5456 with questions regarding the role of a Lawyer Representative or the selection process.
