Home Clerkship Opportunities

Updated: July 14, 2020

Associate Judge Michael J. Garcia hires personal law clerks for one or two-year clerkships.

Judge Garcia is no longer accepting additional applications for clerkships through the 2022–23 term. He does not anticipate hiring for the 2023–24 term or subsequent terms in the near future. Nevertheless, applicants may submit applications at any time and be interviewed at any time, and clerkship offers may be made at any time.

Preferred applicants have exceptional academic standing and will have at least one year of legal employment by the time their clerkship commences. Applications must include a current resume, writing sample, law school transcript, and at least two letters of reference from law professors or legal employers. If possible, please submit a writing sample that has not been edited, or has been only minimally edited, by others.

Complete applications must be mailed to: Hon. Michael J. Garcia, Court of Appeals, 20 Eagle Street, Albany, NY 12207, or emailed to garciachambers@nycourts.gov
