Judicial Clerkship Programs
UF Law supports the Federal Law Clerk Hiring Plan that allows only third-year students and alumni to apply for federal judicial clerkships. For federal judicial law clerk openings beginning in Fall 2012, third-year students are permitted to submit their OSCAR law clerk applications and letters of recommendation so that they are ready for review on Tuesday, September 6, 2011, for the fall hiring cycle. Applicants are strongly encouraged to request letters of recommendation from faculty members well in advance of the due date.
Further, all application materials, including sealed letters of recommendation and transcripts should be sent in one complete mailing, unless the judge is participating in OSCAR. Information on OSCAR (On-line System for Clerkship Application & Review) and the federal judges participating in OSCAR can be found at http://oscar.dcd.uscourts.gov. For students considering openings for mid-term vacancies or new appointees, please follow the application procedures stated in the advertisement.
For additional information or assistance, please contact the Center for Career Development at 352.273.0860 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Judicial Clerkship handouts are available under Resources on Symplicity (https://law-ufl-csm.symplicity.com/students/) and offer important information on the application process, the interview and more.
