Judicial Clerks

PDF

In addition to our law school hiring, we also consider applications from judicial clerks. Nearly half of the lawyers practicing at Morris Nichols have prior experience as judicial clerks. The firm recognizes that judicial clerkships offer a unique opportunity to learn the practical workings of a judge’s chambers and courtroom, and to view issues and cases from the court’s perspective, as well as to gain an invaluable professional and life experience.

The fact that so many of our lawyers have served as judicial clerks speaks to the quality and caliber of our lawyers, their significant legal knowledge across a wide array of issues, and their in-depth experience within the judicial process. Associates who have completed one or more years in a clerkship will receive a competitive bonus and one year of class credit.

Morris Nichols actively seeks applications from lawyers with prior judicial clerkship experience. In October, the firm hosts a law clerk reception to introduce interested candidates to the firm. Contact Crystal D. Deazle for additional information.
