Federal Justice System Nominations
The Constitution gives every Senator the right and responsibility to provide advice and consent to the President on nominations to our federal justice system. One of the most essential roles that Senators play in this process is to recommend individuals to serve as District Court Judges, U.S. Attorneys and U.S. Marshals in their states.
Senator Boxer is committed to recommending to the President potential nominees who are highly qualified and worthy of the enormous trust Californians place in them.
To assist her in this process, Senator Boxer has selected advisory committees comprised of a diverse group of respected individuals in each federal judicial district. When the President asks for recommendations for District Court Judges, U.S. Attorneys and U.S. Marshals, these committees review applications, interview applicants and make recommendations to Senator Boxer.
The list of advisory committee members can be seen here.
The President has asked for recommendations for the following positions:
|Northern District:||District Court Judge
|Eastern District:||District Court Judge
|Central District:||District Court Judge*
|Southern District:||District Court Judge*
* The committee is no longer accepting new applications for this position.
