Judicial Clerks

We highly value the insight and experience gained from a judicial clerkship and have a keen interest in recruiting current judicial clerks who wish to pursue a career with us.  Lawyers who join us after completing a one-year US federal district or appellate court clerkship, highest state court clerkship, or Canadian appellate clerkship receive a bonus of $50,000.  Those associates who complete an eligible clerkship of two years or two one-year clerkships will receive a total bonus of $70,000.   Bonuses for any other type of clerkship will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.  US Supreme Court clerks receive an additional competitive bonus.

To apply for an associate position while clerking, please send a cover letter, resume and transcript to lateralrecruiting@shearman.com.

Please note we do not accept judicial clerk resumes from search firms.
