 Governor Baker Nominates Attorney Julie A. Lowre as Associate Justice of the Juvenile Court

 

BOSTON — Today, Governor Charlie Baker nominated Attorney Julie A. Lowre as Associate Justice of the Juvenile Court.

 

"Attorney Lowre’s many years of legal experience make her well-suited for this appointment," said Governor Charlie Baker. "I am glad to submit her nomination to the Governor's Council for their advice and consent."

 

"If confirmed, this distinguished nominee would bring significant juvenile court experience to her new role,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “I am confident that Attorney Lowre would serve as a fair and thoughtful member of the judiciary.”

 

The Juvenile Court Department is a statewide court with jurisdiction over civil and criminal matters including delinquencies, care and protections, youthful offender cases and children requiring assistance. The Juvenile Court's mission is to protect children from abuse and neglect, to strengthen families, to rehabilitate juveniles and to protect the public from delinquent and criminal behavior. The Juvenile Court has over 40 judges, including Chief Justice Amy L. Nechtem, in over 40 locations.

Judicial nominations are subject to the advice and consent of the Governor’s Council. Applicants for judicial openings are reviewed by the Judicial Nominating Commission (JNC) and recommended to the governor. Governor Baker established the JNC in February 2015 pursuant to Executive Order 558, a non-partisan, non-political Commission composed of volunteers from a cross-section of the Commonwealth's diverse population to screen judicial applications. Twenty-one members were later appointed to the JNC in April 2015.
