3L’s: 2012 OSCAR Federal Law Clerk Hiring Plan Dates Announced!

Please note the following critical application dates for federal judges following the 2012 Federal Law Clerk Hiring Plan:

12:00 pm noon (EDT), Tuesday, September 4, 2012 First date when applications may be received from third-year applicants.

12:00 pm noon (EDT), Friday, September 7, 2012 First date and time when judges may contact third-year applicants to schedule interviews.

10:00 am (EDT), Thursday, September 13, 2012 First date and time to interview and make offers.

Please remember that not all federal judges follow the Federal Law Clerk Hiring Plan. After logging into OSCAR, students can identify whether the judges that they are interested in applying for clerkships with will participate in this plan. In addition, the Judicial Clerkship database (http://www.law2.byu.edu/career_services/government_publicservice/judicial_clerkships/rocky.php & password found in the Document Library on Symplicity) should identify whether or not a particular federal judge accepts applications for clerkships through OSCAR.

If you are considering applying for judicial clerkships, please contact Anneliese or Jaclyn for assistance.
