(Actual expenses for attending the Ninth Circuit Judicial Conference may be reimbursable.)
There will be five openings this year. Four in Phoenix (two bankruptcy, one civil, and one criminal) and one in Tucson (criminal or civil depending on the applications received).
Applications must be submitted no later than August 15, 2017. Please note on the envelope "Lawyer Representative Application Enclosed."
