How to Apply to the Law Clerk Program

Generally, the Tribunal fills its clerk positions well before the start of each semester: January, May-June, September. As such, the best time to think about working at the Tribunal is the semester before you wish to start. Candidates are encouraged to apply early and applications are accepted year round.

Students applying for a law clerk position should submit the following information:

  1. Resume and cover letter,
  2. Law school transcript (this may be unofficial), and
  3. Writing sample.

If interested, you may talk to your school's externship, internship, or work-study coordinator or call the Tribunal.

Application packets may be emailed to the Tribunal at or mailed to the Tribunal at:
