Profile

Law Clerk, 2022-2023
The Honorable Judge Thomas J. Walls, Jr.
Supreme Court law clerks work with justices on complex cases involving difficult issues of law. Appellate Division law clerks conduct research, analyze legal data, prepare legal memoranda, process emergent motion applications, and proofread published opinions. Law clerks for assignment judges learn all aspects of court administration and assist with processing emergent motions. Trial court law clerks gain practical experience while gaining valuable insight into the judicial process. Under the direction of one or more judges over the course of the year, trial court law clerks observe judicial proceedings, attend conferences with attorneys and judges, receive training in mediation and mediate small claims cases and summarize information for judges. Tax Court law clerks perform duties similar to those assigned to law clerks in the Appellate Division and trial courts. Law clerks may be required to attend several days of training at the start of the court term.

Qualification and Experience

Law clerks must have graduated from a law school approved by the American Bar Association by the time of law clerk appointment. Excellent writing and analytical skills are essential. Should ideally have completed a course in mediation prior to the start of the clerkship. Under Court Rule, all trial court law clerks who will serve as mediators must first complete the Judiciary-sponsored 12-hour mediation training or its equivalent.

Court Term: August 25, 2022 - August 31, 2023.

Application Deadline: August 31, 2022.
