Court administrator wanted; pay $140,358

SJC seeks applicants for its new administrator’s job

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court today posted the job description for a new court administrator. Recent legislation eliminated the post of chief justice for administration and management and split that job in two, creating a chief justice of the trial court who will oversee judicial policy and an administrator who will effectively run the courts. Robert Mulligan, the current chief justice for administration and management, will move over to take the job of chief justice of the trial court. The job description for the court administrator’s job seeks someone who can deliver resources for the cash-strapped courts, someone who has “a deep understanding of intergovernmental relations and the public appropriations process, together with a firm grasp of the interconnection between judicial priorities and budgeting.” The candidate must also have “the ability to work with legislators and members of the executive branch to obtain the funding and structural support necessary for the court to carry out its mission.” For the entire posting, click here.
