The Criminal Justice Act Panel is a group of qualified and court-approved attorneys who are eligible for appointment by the Court to represent individuals in criminal cases who are unable for financial reasons to retain counsel. The appointments are made by the Court on a rotating basis among members of the panel.

The court is now accepting applications.  The application period will close on Monday, April 22, 2024.

Instructions on how to apply to the panels, and the application packets, are available on the Office of the Federal Public Defender website.
