Attorney and non-attorney applicants are being sought by the Hawai’i Supreme Court to fill several positions on the Disciplinary Board.

Six positions in total will be expiring shortly and need to be filled.

Each term would last three years, beginning on July 1.

Board members are not compensated for this service, but travel is reimbursed.

The Hawai’i Supreme Court Disciplinary Board oversees the Office of Disciplinary Counsel, which investigates allegations of attorney misconduct and incapacity, and recommends appropriate action to the Hawai’i Supreme Court to effectuate the purposes of its Disciplinary Rules.


Sound judgement and a willingness and ability to devote time to perform necessary duties, including learning the procedures, methods, and functions of the Board, are necessary to become a member.


Other qualifications include experience in specialized areas that will aid in the evaluation and analysis of complaints and recommendations for discipline.

Applications are due by May 16. A resume and letter of interest should be sent to Gayle J. Lau, Nominating Committee, Supreme Court of Hawai’i, P.O. Box 26436
Honolulu, HI 96825.
