The California Supreme Court is charged with appointing five members of the State Bar of California’s Board of Trustees. Pursuant to Rule 9.90 of the California Rules of Court, the Supreme Court has created the State Bar Trustees Nominating Committee to solicit, receive, screen, and evaluate all applications for appointment or reappointment to the Board of Trustees and to make recommendations to the Supreme Court.
The Board of Trustees is charged with the executive functions of the State Bar. Public protection is the highest priority of the State Bar in exercising its licensing, regulatory, and disciplinary functions. The full Board of Trustees meets at least six times a year, in addition to committee meetings, to consider organizational, policy, and professional issues.
