This is an unpaid fellowship clerkship for attorneys or recent law graduates who are members of the active duty or reserve U.S. Armed Forces.
Applicants should make arrangements with the military or otherwise to provide for their basic pay and allowances during the clerkship. There will be no stipend or expenses provided by the Court.
Start and end dates are flexible, but applicants must be able to commit 4 days and 35 hours per week for no less than 5 continuous months.
Fellows will work in chambers with the Judge's term clerks and be assigned their own cases. Fellows can expect to write bench memoranda, draft opinions, and attend oral arguments and other court proceedings.
Cover letters should explain how the required or preferred criteria are met. Recommendation should be from your present or former commanding officer.
Has anyone heard of such a thing being done between the military and the courts? Or heard of anything similar to it?
I know that there are some who want to do federal judicial clerkships and JAG. Maybe things like this could be a good way?
