New Jersey is currently hiring 480 law clerks at every level – Supreme Court, Appellate, and Trial court clerks. 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. Tax Court law clerks perform duties similar to those assigned to law clerks in the Appellate Division and trial courts, but do not mediate cases.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter and resume to individual justices and judges (writing samples, transcripts, and letters of recommendation are encouraged, but not required); or you may email a resume and cover letter to the Judiciary Human Resources Office at firstname.lastname@example.org, Attn: Sindy Odas (#11-46).
