Judicial Clerks

Fish values the experience and skills that a former judicial clerk brings to our practice, as demonstrated by the large and diverse number of former judicial clerks in our ranks. Indeed, many of our attorneys have clerked for the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit as well as other federal circuit courts of appeals, federal district courts, and state courts. We encourage our Summer Associates who are interested in gaining such valuable experience to pursue judicial clerkship opportunities.

"My experience as a judicial law clerk prepared me well to succeed as a lawyer.  It taught me very early in my legal career how to identify effective written and oral advocacy from the perspective of the person actually issuing the rulings. Every day for an entire year, I worked closely with an accomplished and experienced mentor who helped me to develop legal skills that serve me well to this day in my litigation practice at Fish.  My legal writing and research skills have been better than they would have been if I hadn’t clerked.  In addition, my clerkship experiences help me to think strategically about what issues to bring before a judge and how to do so effectively."
