Supreme Court clerk salary

Post by Anonymous User » Mon Jan 23, 2023 11:39 am

Does anyone know what Supreme Court clerks get paid during their terms? Are they on the standard JSP scale like all other clerks?

They are not. They get paid the equivalent of JS12 though. Which actually means they’re underpaid compared to all other clerks because most candidates clerk for two years before getting on the court (which would typically get you JS13).

Plus, 2 years clerking + a year of practice would = JS14.
