Third Thursday of January, April, June, and September.
Dear Judicial Candidate,
Thank you for your interest in being screened by The Cardozo Judicial Evaluation Committee's (CJEC). In order for us to schedule a date, we ask that you submit the following our Chair:
1. Completed Governor's Uniform Judicial Evaluation Questionnaire. IMPORTANT: Please do NOT provide us with your social security number (page 1 of the Uniform Judicial Evaluation Questionnaire).
2. Signed Waiver of Liability (See Documents).
3. Preferred dates according the dates listed on our website.
A quorum of the CJEC (at least four members) will be present at your interview. The interview will last twenty minutes. You will have time for a short opening and closing statement. You will be questioned informally by Committee members.
Immediately following your interview, those Committee members present during your interview will discuss your screening and vote on your rating. The Chair of the CJEC will notify you of your rating within two business days thereafter.
Our decision is based upon the Uniform Judicial Evaluation Questionnaire, reference checks, your interview, and any other information we find relevant. This is done in conjunction with our by-laws (See Documents). The screening process and deliberations are confidential and the information obtained is not disclosed.
The CJEC has a diverse membership with regard to gender, race, age, type of practice, size of firm, geographic, and other factors considered relevant.
Thank you again for seeking our evaluation.
