Judicial Candidate Evaluation Committee

Additional Info

Judicial Candidate Evaluation Committee Policy  updated 3/1/16

previously known as Judicial Nominations Committee

The Judicial Candidate Evaluation Committee consists of thirteen active lawyer members, one from each of the bar’s ten disciplinary districts and three from the state at large, elected to staggered three-year terms by Council on recommendation of the nominating committee. When a judicial vacancy occurs on the Supreme Court of Virginia, the Court of Appeals of Virginia, the State Corporation Commission, the Federal District Courts in Virginia, or a Virginia seat on the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, it is the responsibility of the JCEC to consider and, where appropriate, seek nominees. A member of the JCEC from a particular VSB disciplinary district will normally be assigned to investigate any and all nominees from that district.
