Federal Judicial and U.S. Attorney Vacancies in Texas

Senators Cornyn and Cruz have established the Federal Judicial Evaluation Committee (FJEC), a bipartisan panel of leading attorneys in Texas, which reviews applications, interviews candidates, and makes recommendations to the Senators to help fill judicial vacancies. 

The Senators are now accepting applications for judicial vacancies in the U.S. District Courts for the Western District of Texas and the Southern District of Texas. These vacancies are located in El Paso and McAllen, respectively.

The Senators invite qualified attorneys to seek appointment to these positions by submitting their resumes and completed questionnaires to both lawmakers’ offices. You can download the application by clicking the button below.

Questions regarding applications and the process may be directed to the contacts listed below.
