United States Tax Court Law Clerk Interview Days

The U.S. Tax Court Interview Day process has begun. Participating Judges are accepting applications via the Court’s website – www.ustaxcourt.gov – through August 9 for law clerk positions beginning in the summer of 2022.  

Application Submission – Students interested in submitting applications should do so electronically via the Court’s website – www.ustaxcourt.gov. From August 2 through August 9, interested candidates can submit electronic application packages directly to each participating Judge. To see the list of participating Judges, applicants should first select the “About the Court” tab, then “Employment” on the drop-down menu, and finally the “Law Clerk Program” tab.  Once there, applicants should scroll down to Application Procedures and click on the list of Judges currently recruiting. Candidates may submit application packets to one or more participating Judges.

Application Materials – All students are asked to provide a cover letter, resume, writing sample of no longer than 10 pages, and J.D. and LL.M. (if applicable) transcripts. Letters of reference also may be provided but are not required. All documents should be provided in PDF format.

Interviewee Selection – Each participating Chambers will contact the applicants they are interested in interviewing. Virtual interviews will be scheduled between September 7 and September 10. Note: Chambers may make independent arrangements for interviews.
