The Central District Court of California in Los Angeles is seeking a term Law Clerk. This law clerk will answer to the Chief Magistrate Judge but will support the needs of the full Court. The position announcement can be found here.
The Court is explicit in its direction that only those applicants who are Bar certified and have prior legal experience, preferably in litigation, will be given serious consideration. The Court is part of a growing trend – more and more courts and judges are seeking experienced attorneys to serve as law clerks and in staff attorney positions, which can require the attorneys to work with several members of a court on several different matters at once.
