Elvis Riviera Salinas

LOS ANGELES – Former Victorville teacher Elvis Rivera Salinas, a Judicial Fellow at the Stanley Mosk courthouse, encourages interested candidates to submit applications, due February 7. The Judicial Fellows program, a 10-month fellowship experience, provides the opportunity to broaden understanding of the judicial system through exposure to state court administration.

“I have learned a great deal about the importance of court administration,” said Salinas. “In addition, academic and field seminars allow me to connect theory to practice and meet key figures within California’s judicial branch.”

Salinas received a bachelor’s degree in history from California State University, San Bernardino, and a master’s degree—also in history—from the University of Pittsburgh. Prior to entering the Judicial Fellows program Salinas taught U.S. history, economics, and government in his hometown of Victorville.

“I applied to the Judicial Fellowship because of my interest in law and the role of the judiciary in our system of government,” said Salinas.

Salinas says he is currently working in the Community Relations Office in the Stanley Mosk courthouse in Downtown Los Angeles. He anticipates to later transition to the Communications/Legislative Affairs Office where he will aid staff in assessing legislation with the potential to impact court functions.

I highly recommend anyone interested in applying
