judicial internship - mail or e-mail?

Postby justhoping » Mon Dec 26, 2011 8:28 pm

It appears that Simplicity only shows addresses of judges, can we e-mail the judges instead of printing and mailing each letter?
Sorry for creating this new thread just for a quick answer (I couldn't find the answer with forum search) :oops:

If they give you a physical address and no e-mail, that means they want you to send the app materials snail mail. That seems to be the general preference of many judges.

The federal judiciary is very formal still, so US mailing is the way to go. State judicial positions might be different though. Check with your career services.

I only emailed internship apps and got a bunch of offers.

Going off the number of judges who only permit electronic apps for clerkships, I'd say most don't care if you email.

Yes for the cover letter and resume, but not for the writing sample and writing sample cover sheet (at least that is how I did it).

Don't spring for "special" resume paper; that costs way too much if you are mailing more then 30 judges. Use http://www.staples.com/Staples-Pastel-Colored-Copy-Paper-8-1-2-x-11-Cream-Ream/product_490950
