Bar examiner applicants sought

Appointed board members will serve three-year terms beginning Nov. 1. Board members receive no compensation but may be reimbursed for travel and other expenses incidental to the performance of their duties.

The Nominating Committee will provide recommendations to the Supreme Court, which makes the final selections.


Attorney applicants should submit a letter of interest along with a resume to: Gayle J. Lau, Chair, Hawaii Supreme Court Nominating Committee, P.O. Box 26436 Honolulu, HI 96825.

The deadline to submit applications is Oct. 1.
