Law Clerk Positions Available: September 2020 to August 2021 Term
Applications Currently Being Accepted

The Law Clerk Program is similar to a judicial clerkship in that it is a year-long position designed for law school graduates who have either recently graduated or have completed judicial clerkships and have a sincere interest in becoming assistant prosecutors. We typically hire several full-time law clerks each year. The term of service is for one year, usually commencing in early September and terminating the following August. On occasion, depending on the needs of the office, other starting dates may be available.

The law clerks are assigned to the Appellate and Motions Unit of the office where they work under the supervision of seasoned assistant prosecutors. Daily responsibilities include preparation of motions, response to motions, appellate briefs and a myriad of other research projects. The clerks are responsible for municipal appeals including the presentation of the appeal to the assigned judges.

The Law Clerk Program provides an exposure to a wide variety of interesting and challenging legal issues giving new attorneys a unique opportunity to gain experience in the field of criminal law.  Many of our former law clerks have utilized this training to further their careers as assistant prosecutors in our office, throughout the state, or as members of the criminal defense bar.
