D.C. Bar Commences Annual Judicial Survey

Director of Special Projects

The D.C. Bar Judicial Evaluations Committee is beginning its annual survey of attorneys about judges sitting on the D.C. Court of Appeals and D.C. Superior Court. The results of the evaluations are given to the evaluated judge and the chief judge of his/her court. For those judges whose terms are up, the results are also given to the D.C. Commission on Judicial Disabilities and Tenure, for use in making reappointment decisions. This year, the Judicial Evaluations Committee is hoping to increase the number of government lawyers who respond to the surveys, by reaching out to the U.S. attorney’s office and the D.C. Office of the Attorney General.
