Volunteer as a Court Appointed Temporary Judge

 Volunteer As A Court Appointed Temporary Judge

Have you ever thought about serving as a court-appointed temporary judge? If so, you are in luck! The Stanislaus County Superior Court is actively recruiting qualified members of the local Bar to sit as court-appointed temporary judges in the following departments:

* Traffic         * Small Claims         * Unlawful Detainer         *DCSS


The Stanislaus Superior Court is offering the following (required) classes on February 4, 2022:

Bench Conduct and Demeanor: 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon
Instructors: Presiding Judge Robert B. Westbrook and Commissioner Lynne R. Meredith

How to Handle a Busy Traffic Calendar for Temporary Judges: 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Instructor: Commissioner Lynne R. Meredith


The Court has partnered with the Stanislaus County Bar Association (SCBA) to offer MCLE credit for these classes for FREE. Plus, lunch between the classes will be hosted by McCormick Barstow LLP in conjunction with the SCBA.

Register for these FREE MCLE classes and lunch by sending an email with contact information (name, Bar number, email address and phone number) to:

While the Court provides a modest monetary stipend to temporary judges, serving as a court-appointed temporary judge is a great way to give back to your community while doing something intellectually challenging and personally rewarding. Also, if you have ever thought of becoming a judge or commissioner, serving as a temporary judge is an invaluable experience.

We hope you can join us for these FREE MCLE classes and lunch on February 4. If you have any questions about the classes or requirements for being appointed as a temporary judge, please contact Orlando Rosales at (209) 530-3287 or go to California Courts: Temporary Judge Resources.

1 Both classes will be conducted in person at the Modesto Main Courthouse. If the COVID-19 pandemic interferes with our plan, the classes may be conducted virtually. All registered participants will be notified of any changes.
