FEDERAL CLERKSHIPS

If you are interested in applying for federal judicial clerkships, a good place to begin is by reviewing the job postings and information on OSCAR. The Online System for Clerkship Application & Review (OSCAR) is a single, centralized resource for notice of available federal clerkships, federal clerkship application information, and federal law clerk employment information. OSCAR accommodates federal judges who choose to accept clerkship applications electronically, federal judges who want to receive only paper applications, and federal judges who wish to advise applicants that they do not have a clerkship vacancy.
