The CJA Panel is comprised of private attorneys who are authorized to serve as appointed defense counsel pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 3006A. The CJA Plan governs the composition, administration, and management of the Panel.
Attorneys who are not current members of the CJA Panel may apply using the Application for a Three-Year Term on the CJA Panel. Applications are accepted during a specified time period that will be announced via a public notice on CM/ECF. At that time, an interested attorney can complete the application using the fillable PDF, and email the completed application to [email protected].
Current CJA Panel attorneys will be contacted towards the conclusion of their three-year term and asked if they wish to remain on the panel. To remain on the panel, they will be required to reapply using the Application for an Additional Three-Year Term on the CJA Panel. At that time, an interested attorney can complete the application for an additional three-year term using the fillable PDF, and email the completed application to [email protected].
