Any St. Joseph County attorney who wants to be a trial court judge can now apply for that opportunity.

The county's Judicial Nominating Commission is accepting applications until 5 p.m. Aug. 29 for the judicial vacancy when St. Joseph Superior Judge William T. Means retires Sept. 30. The commission, which will recommend candidates for consideration to the governor, met last week to set a schedule for the application process.

Interviews for applicants will be Sept. 12 in South Bend.

According to state law, the nominating commission can submit up to five nominees to the governor for consideration.

To be eligible, applicants must live in St. Joseph County, be a U.S. citizen, and be admitted to practice law in Indiana. Factors considered by commission members include the applicant's law school record, scholarly work, public service work in civic affairs and justice administration, legal experience, probable judicial temperament, physical condition, personality traits, and potential conflicts of interest.

Application forms are available from St. Joseph Court Clerk Rita Glenn at (574) 235-9772 or online at www.in.gov/judiciary/stjoseph/judicial-application.pdf.
