- Judicial Appointments - Legal Division
Michigan's constitution permits Governor Snyder to fill vacancies in judicial office by appointment. If you meet the legal qualifications to serve as a judge and are interested in receiving an appointment to judicial office, please follow the link here to obtain a judicial appointment questionnaire. You must submit two copies of the completed questionnaire to the Governor's Legal Division by the deadline displayed in the News & Events section of the State Bar of Michigan's website in order to be considered. Candidates who merit consideration will be interviewed and rated by the State Bar's Judicial Qualifications Committee, which will conduct a thorough background check of the applicant's fitness to serve as a judge. Certain candidates may then be selected for further consideration by the Governor's Office before the Governor makes an appointment.
