Judicial Preparation Panels: If you are an AMBA member who is considering applying for a future vacancy on the Pima County Superior Court bench, AMBA strongly suggests you begin working on your application now. AMBA has a judicial appointments committee that can review your applications and/or conduct mock interviews with you to help you prepare for success.
AMBA STUDENT-MENTORING PROGRAM: AMBA initiated a student mentor program allowing lawyers to work with a student while providing total flexibility to accommodate the lawyer's schedule and preferred time commitment. This program allows the attorney anything from a one-time visit to a regularly-designated meeting or a meeting occurring two-to-three times per year. The program also provides students an opportunity to observe lawyers at a court hearing/trial and, preferably, allows the student to visit a law office or other location of the lawyer's choosing. Lawyers will be paired with students from City High School located in downtown Tucson. City High has a diverse student body of which half would be the first in their families to go to college. City High will transport the students to and from the Court or location of the meeting. If you would like to learn more about the opportunity or volunteer, please contact us via the website. Or, sign up for our student newsletter!
