Appointed Counsel

The annual application period for the court's CJA Appellate Panels runs from June 2, 2014, to September 2, 2014. Counsel with experience in federal criminal law and appellate procedure are invited to apply for panel membership using the CJA Panel Application Form. Applications are reviewed by the CJA Panel Committee, and the committee makes its final recommendations to the court of appeals each fall after completing its review of the applications. For members whose terms have expired, reapplication can be made by an abbreviated application for renewal within 12 months of expiration of your term.
