    STATE OF MINNESOTA

    SUPREME COURT

     

    TO APPLICANTS SEEKING A POSITION AS A LAW CLERK

    WITH THE MINNESOTA SUPREME COURT FOR THE 2018-2019 TERM

    SUPREME COURT

    The Minnesota Supreme Court is the highest court of the State of Minnesota and consists of seven justices.  It has discretionary review of cases from the Minnesota Court of Appeals.  It has direct appellate jurisdiction over cases involving first-degree murder convictions, as well as cases from the Tax Court and Workers’ Compensation Court of Appeals.  It has original jurisdiction over attorney-discipline matters and certain election cases.  The court sits at the Minnesota Judicial Center in St. Paul, Minnesota.  Oral arguments are regularly scheduled during the first two weeks of every month from September through June.

     

    The court will hire law clerks for one year, which generally extends from August 1 to July 31 of the following year.

    Approximately 11 clerkships will be offered for the August 2018 through July 2019 term.  With the exception of the Chief Justice, who has two law clerks, each justice has one law clerk and a law clerk that he or she “shares” with another member of the court.  The three “shared clerks” regularly work on cases with two of the justices throughout the year.

     

    SUPREME COURT LAW CLERK DUTIES:  Candidates apply to the court as a whole.  Interviews take place with the entire court and justices select law clerks in order of seniority.  Successful candidates accept a position with a particular justice or justices, but they also serve the court as a whole.  During months when the court is in session, a law clerk is typically assigned one or two cases, and the clerk is expected to prepare a bench memorandum in the assigned case(s) that is distributed to the entire court in advance of oral argument.  Law clerks will attend oral arguments in their assigned case(s) and, often, in other cases of interest or importance.  Law clerks also serve as court marshals for hearings.  After the case is heard and the justices determine how to resolve the case in conference, law clerks work closely with their justice on the preparation of an opinion.  Law clerks also perform cite checks on the court’s opinions and orders throughout the year.  Depending on the justice, clerks may also be given additional assignments during the clerkship.

     

    QUALIFICATIONS:  The minimum academic requirement for application is enrollment as a second-year law student.  Graduation from an accredited law school is required to begin employment.  Professional skills and scholastic proficiency are both considered.  Strong writing and research skills are essential.  Experience on a law review or law journal is preferred.  The court will select its law clerks after it reviews applications and conducts interviews.

     

    SALARY AND BENEFITS:  The anticipated salary for the 2018 - 2019 term is $60,740.  An excellent State of Minnesota benefits package and contract parking are available. Also available is reduced-priced public transportation.  Visit http://mn.gov/mmb/segip/ for current benefit information.

    TO APPLY:  Apply online at www.mncourts.gov by attaching a cover letter, resume, and legal writing sample to the online application.  Please arrange for your official transcript, with class rank, if available, to be mailed or e-mailed directly from your Registrar’s Office to the address listed below.  Letters of recommendation are highly recommended and also should be sent or e-mailed directly to the address listed below.
