As a judiciary law clerk, your roles are to conduct research, attend court sessions, write documents, and offer administrative assistance to judges. Your job will be limited to within the court, although you may also need to leave and deliver documents. By doing their jobs, law clerks help judges make the best decisions, in any given case.
A day in the life of a judiciary law clerk involves doing legal research for the judge's cases, managing records, maintaining the judge's schedule, submitting documents, attending court sessions, and administering oaths to witnesses.
Judiciary law clerks are required to have passed the state bar exam and have past clerical experience. They may also need to pass a criminal background check to land the position. Employers look for clerical skills like multitasking and typing over 40 words per minute when filling this position.
