Judicial Clerks

A judicial clerkship is an unparalleled learning experience—and so much more. It is a unique public-service opportunity that aligns directly with our firm’s core values.

Judicial clerks gain valuable exposure to effective trial and appellate advocacy, courtroom procedure and jurisprudence. In private practice, these skills help firm lawyers deliver high-quality counsel to clients and provide effective leadership in the profession and community.

We actively recruit former judicial clerks with experience in the US Supreme Court, federal appellate courts and district courts across the country, and in state appellate courts. (For a list of firm lawyers who have served as judicial clerks, click here.) We also support the efforts of law students and our firm's junior associates to apply for and accept judicial clerkships, and encourage their return to Hunton Andrews Kurth after completing their service.

We offer specific incentives for judicial clerks who join the firm. Based on experience, we may offer clerkship bonuses and up to two years of seniority and salary credit for purposes of partnership consideration and compensation.

Contacts

Former judicial clerks and clerks nearing the end of their service should provide a current resume and law school transcript, accompanied by a cover letter, to the appropriate recruiting contact. You may also apply for potential fall openings as well as for Current Openings listed for experienced attorneys on this website.
