Angeles Superior Court currently has one of the largest on going
volunteer/intern services in the nation. The Court implemented its
volunteer/internship program in July, 1982. The volunteer/internship programs
average 8,000 hours a month and over 96,000 hours annually. The Court currently
has more than 3,400 volunteers/interns in 30+ programs contributing over
270,000 hours per year. The Superior Court Out-Reach (SCOR) Program is an
example of a collaborative team effort providing positive results for everyone
it serves including judicial officers, court administration, staff,
volunteers/interns and our community.
The Temporary Judge Program in the LASC has been highly effective thanks to the
participation of dedicated Bar members. The contribution temporary judges make
to the people of Los Angeles County in general and the LASC in particular
cannot be underestimated.
Temporary Judges serve at the discretion of the Presiding Judge and must be
members of the California State Bar in good standing for 10 years. They must
complete an application for each three year term and receive training outlined
in Rule 2.812, California Rules of Court.
Neither appointment nor service as a temporary judge creates any employment
relationship with the Court.
Panel attorneys may also be appointed as counsel, guardians ad litem, referees,
special masters, court experts or fiduciaries as may be mandated or appropriate
under the circumstances.
