Download the Panel Application


Please email the completed application to Include a resume and two writing samples as attachments. Each writing sample should include an opening brief, respondents brief, reply brief, court opinion, and any petition for review. The application may also be mailed to: Yolanda Edwards, Sixth District Appellate Program, 95 S. Market Street, Suite 570, San Jose CA 95113.

While we strive to admit all qualified applicants, we must also balance the needs of existing panel attorneys to receive an adequate number of cases. With that said, SDAP is still accepting - and potentially admitting - applicants who are baed in the Sixth District OR who have considerable California appellate experience and can handle the highest level cases. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Patrick McKenna at prior to submitting your application.
