CJA Panel Applications Being Accepted
The Criminal Justice Act Panel is a group of qualified attorneys, selected by a committee of judges and experienced attorneys to represent individuals in criminal cases who are financially unable to retain counsel. The appointments are made on a rotating basis; the goal is for each attorney on the general panel to receive about six felony appointments each year. The current attorney hourly rate is $155.
CJA Panel applications are being accepted until May 3, 2021. The new three-year term begins on July 1, 2021. Qualifications for panel members can be found in the district’s CJA Plan at section IX(C)(3) which can be found here. And panel applications can be found here.
If you have any questions about the application process or the CJA program, in general, please contact Laura Shaneyfelt, CJA Resource Counsel, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 316-761-3652.
