What is a Judicial Clerkship?
A judicial clerk is a law school graduate who assists a judge in carrying out the
responsibilities of the judicial office. Most judicial clerks are appointed for one
or two years, although sometimes judges hire permanent or career clerks. Judicial
clerkships are different from judicial internships, which are performed by law students
during the summer or school year.
Why should you be interested in a Judicial Clerkship?
A judicial clerkship is one of the most prestigious, interesting, and professionally
rewarding jobs in the legal profession. Judicial clerkships provide skills and connections
that will benefit you for your entire career. A judicial clerk obtains a behind-the-scenes
experience with the workings of the judicial system. Because judicial clerkships
are prestigious, obtaining a judicial clerkship can further career opportunities by
providing you a competitive edge in seeking both private and public sector legal employment.
