Clerkship Hiring in Your State
Use these guides to get an overview of the hiring process in your state. As with all jobs searches, the formal application process is supported by general outreach and relationship building.
Ex: If you want to clerk in Ohio it is a good idea to join a local bar organization, begin researching Ohio judges and start connecting with current and former clerks on LinkedIn. As always, keep CSO updated, so we can best support your search.
Be sure to check Symplicity for postings. You should also check the state court website and court hr portal in the state where you would like to clerk.
Guide to State Judicial Clerkships (Vermont)
The Career Services Office at Vermont Law School has published the "Guide to State Court Judicial Clerkship Procedures" since 1994.
We created the guide because our students were interested in serving as judicial law clerks across the country and rapidly discovered that each state hired law clerks in its own special way.
