This site includes three vacancy lists: 1) Vacancies Open for Applications; 2) Current Vacancies; 3) Future Mandatory Retirements. 

Applications will be accepted only for vacancies on the "Vacancies Open for Applications" list.  The “Current Vacancies” list will be updated frequently to include current vacancies in all courts of the Commonwealth, but applicants must wait for a particular vacancy to be added to the “Vacancies Open for Applications” list in order to apply.  Please note that not all vacancies are posted to accept applications.  Some vacancies not posted are filled with nominations of applicants recommended by the Judicial Nominating Commission for other vacancies.  Please call 617-725-4031 for more information.
