A new judicial mentoring program is expanding statewide, after the success of a pilot program led by San Francisco’s First District Court of Appeal to help recruit qualified and diverse future candidates to California’s appellate courts.
The program seeks to demystify the judicial appointment process by pairing lawyers and superior court judicial officers with a seasoned justice.
