By observing judicial proceedings and working on cases from start to finish under the close watch of judges, Law Clerks develop their skills and gain an unparalleled understanding of the workings of the Court.
Law Clerks perform legal research,
analyze motions and other matters on calendar, and perform other duties
to expedite court business. A majority of Law Clerks are assigned to judges
who preside over general and limited jurisdiction civil departments. Depending
on experience, interest and availability, some Law Clerks may be assigned
to specialized departments, including complex litigation, family law,
writs and receivers, juvenile, criminal or appeals.
