The Missouri Bar Board of Governors is seeking applications from members of the general public who reside in three judicial circuits and want to serve on the Missouri Judicial Performance Review Committee. 

The open positions are for residents in the 16th Judicial Circuit (Jackson County), 21st Judicial Circuit (St. Louis County), and 22nd Judicial Circuit (City of St. Louis). Applicants cannot be members of The Missouri Bar. 

Established pursuant to Supreme Court of Missouri Rules 10.50 through 10.55, the Judicial Performance Review Committee evaluates, using judicial performance review standards, the performances of appellate and trial judges appointed under the constitutional nonpartisan selection process known as the Missouri Nonpartisan Court Plan. The committee is comprised of 21 members – one member of The Missouri Bar and one member of the general public from each circuit where judges are initially selected under the Nonpartisan Court Plan, as well as one member of The Missouri Bar, one member of the general public, and one retired judge from each Missouri Court of Appeals district. Each member serves a six-year term, with a limit of two terms.  

Those interested can apply by completing the online application form, providing a statement of interest, and submitting biographical information (CV or resume) by 5 p.m. April 27.
