Outreach Committee

The Outreach Committee (made up of numerous Santa Clara judges) will work with all sectors of the legal community, including bar associations, public interest organizations, government attorneys, private law firms and solo practitioners. The goals of this outreach effort are to:

  • Inform members of the legal community of the program;
  • Disseminate consistent information regarding the Governor’s judicial criteria; and
  • Identify and encourage individuals in a position to assist in recruiting possible candidates for the bench.

Collaboration with Bar Groups

The Mentor Committee will coordinate with bar organizations that already have judicial recruitment programs. Affinity bar leaders have uniformly indicated their desire to work with the Court to make the mentor panel the endpoint of bar recruitment pipelines. The committee will work with bar organizations to formalize a mentoring process that results in one-on-one mentoring with judges.

The Outreach Committee will work with local bar groups, including affinity bar associations, to formalize a recruitment process that results in one-on-one mentoring with judges. The program is not intended to supplant existing bar programs but to complement these efforts by providing bar associations with current insight into the Governor’s judicial qualifications and priorities.
