How do I apply for a judgeship?

If you are interested in a particular vacancy, you'll need first to express interest in the position by either nominating yourself, if you're a member of the State Bar of Georgia, or having a member of the public nominate you. You'll then mail in a questionnaire, a one page resume, a writing sample, two copies of a release form and a photo.
