Law Clerk

The position of a law clerk is perceived to be the same as that of a court clerk, but in reality they’re very different since the former is actually an attorney unlike the latter. Although they are both assistants, the route to getting to both of these occupations and how they actually assist are both very different. And any legal recruiter will tell you that these attorneys are looked upon with greater respect than that of court clerks.

These lawyers are seen as highly intelligent because of how they help judges in any form of court, whether it’s a state court or the most prestigious judges of all in the United States Supreme Court; they are more commonly found among higher ranking judges. The law clerk’s job is to actually give the judge that they work for advice on how to judge their cases. These attorneys are looked upon with great reverence since they are actually in essence influencing their employer judges in a decision, sometimes in major landmark cases.

In order to be even considered for the position, the typical person that wants to be this type of lawyer would have to graduate from a prestigious law school and/or at (or sometimes near) the top of their class at their law school. It’s also encouraged to have knowledge and experience in a law review and/or a moot court. These things are different, but both make your reputation known and will look better to a legal recruiter.

Law Review

A law review is something that all lawyers will eventually look into and even do themselves since it shows their intelligence to the legal world looking at them for the first time. This is a scholastic journal that is published by students within a law school to display what they know about the law and reveals themselves as future attorneys in the articles they write. There are law schools that only publish one but others that publish several depending on how seriously the students take it.

Moot Court

Moot court is not a mock trial, which is a mistake that many people make. This is where students participate in court proceedings that are created just so that the law students can practice being lawyers in a real courtroom situation. A typical moot court lawyer would make drafts of their arguments and then verbally state them as if they were truly in court.
