Judicial Vacancies

Thank you for your interest in serving in the Massachusetts Judiciary. There are three vacancy lists: 1) Apply to Open Vacancies; 2) 2020 and Previous Vacancies; 3) Current and Upcoming 2021 Vacancies.

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. 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.
