Aranda Award Application

Thank you for taking time to make a nomination for the distinguished Aranda Award. Presented for the first time in 1999, the Aranda Award honors a judge who has demonstrated a long-term commitment to improving access to our courts, and who has significantly improved access for low-and moderate-income Californians. The Judicial Council, the CLA, and the California Judges Association, in association with the California Commission on Access to Justice, co-sponsor the award. The Aranda Award is named in honor of the late Judge Benjamin Aranda III, who was known for his tireless efforts to promote fairness and access in the courts.   

We encourage you to provide us with as much detail and information about the nominee as you can. Please tell us why you feel they are special and would be an outstanding recipient of the Aranda Award.
