Texas Supreme Court Clerkship

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Feb 05, 2019 7:24 pm

Generally, the Texas Supreme Court puts out a flyer welcoming people to apply for clerkships in January the year before the clerkship will begin. No such flyer has been posted yet. Does anybody have insider information on whether it is safe to apply or whether one should wait for the official posting?

Anon because profile has revealing information that chambers could find.

Different user, also interested.

Also, does anyone know what the typical salary is? Google is turning up wildly different answers.

I clerked for the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, the highest court for criminal matters in Texas (in theory the CCA and the Texas Supreme Court are equal). Salary at CCA is $55K and salary at SCOTX is $61K, but I know the CCA is asking for more money this year so that they will be at $61K next year. But that is not set in stone.

SCOTX is able to charge filing fees, so they typically get paid a bit more. Not sure if they will see a salary increase after this legislative session though.

Does this count? It's the same salary as the last advertisement last year but seems like a different position...

No need to wait for the flyer to post. Each judge has different hiring practices, but the staff and current clerks tend to keep an eye out for applications whenever they arrive. Things are already moving for 2020-21, so if you're thinking about applying its best to do so now.

If I have secured an interview, is it fine to reach out to another justice to let them know that I will be in town?

Chambers are reviewing applications for '20-'21 now. Get 'em in.
