Caplin & Drysdale values the practical experience that judicial clerks are exposed to and in turn are able build upon after their clerkship is completed. We want to be a part of the process of helping you explore that experience to ensure your success in the legal profession. In recent years, we've hired judicial clerks from various courts across the country, some of whom were previous summer associates at our firm.
We encourage judicial clerks to apply for an associate position with us. Generally, associates who have clerked immediately following graduation from law school will be hired and compensated at the same level as their graduating class. Also, the firm will consider bonuses to judicial clerks once employment commences.
