If you see yourself relocating to the East Coast, consider applying for clerkships through the New Jersey Courts Judicial Clerkship program, which offers numerous opportunities! See the notice below we received from the administrator of the program. As always, your CDO judicial clerkship team is hear over the summer to help with your applications.

As we start to prepare for the upcoming NJ Courts Judicial Clerkship 2022-2023 term application period, I wanted to go over some key dates and updates. NJ Courts has decided to mirror the Federal OSCAR application opening dates for the 2022-2023 Court Term.  Our law clerk portal will now open on Monday, June 14th instead of the previously announced date of June 21st.  This will also broaden the window between clerkship applications and the July Bar Exam.  Please see below for the updated 2022-2023 application schedule.
