Our litigation team relies on its law clerks for cutting-edge legal research, case analysis, court preparation, drafting, and litigation strategy.
Law clerk applicants should possess a deep understanding of classical liberal principles, have a strong work ethic, demonstrate a capacity for creative thinking, and have exceptional legal research and writing skills. Applicants must be personable and have a good sense of humor. We prefer applicants with a strong academic record who have completed at least one year of law school and have completed at least one course in constitutional law.
Fall and Spring Semester
Law students are encouraged to take advantage of clerkships offered during the Fall and Spring semesters. Clerkship opportunities are available for both local and remote law clerks. Fall and Spring law clerks typically obtain academic credit for their clerkship. We encourage students to contact their career services department as each law school has varying requirements for earning academic credit. We encourage you to apply early because we have limited seats available during Fall and Spring and those seats are filled up months in advance.
Summer clerkships are highly competitive, paid positions. Summer clerks are required to work full time (40 hours/week) and commit to the entire summer. Clerkships for academic credit are also available during Summer. We do not currently offer remote clerkship opportunities during the Summer months. We strongly urge you to apply in late September or early October. We typically fill our Summer class before December.
