Judicial Endorsements
Share |

We seek to advance women’s representation in the judiciary and the bar. AWL endorses candidates for:


  • State Judicial Positions – AWL may endorse non-elected judicial candidates following the non-partisan court plan.
  • Federal and Local Judicial Positions – AWL may endorse candidates selected for federal judicial appointments or members of the panel selected by a commission for municipal judgeships.
  • Commissions, Bar Association Positions and Other Leadership Positions – If appropriate and consistent with AWL’s bylaws, we may endorse applicants for judicial nominating commissions, bar association positions or other leadership roles.


Please note:

  • AWL does not endorse judicial candidates at the pre-panel level or while a candidate’s application is pending before the nominating commission.
  • Once a panel of three candidates is selected by the Judicial Nominating Commission, any AWL panel member may formally apply for AWL’s endorsement. The application is available here.
  • Certain nomination deadlines may apply. Our full guidelines are available here
