Dear Chief Justice Shepard,
I have passed my JD course from Chicago University in the year 2007 in the month of June. I would like to be considered for the post of judicial Clerk beginning August 2007. I am originally from Chicago but I do not mind shifting to Indianapolis for a brighter and better future. If required I am prepared to settle permanently in Indianapolis.
My experience as a research assistant to Professor XXX helped me to hone my research skills. I reviewed the recent changes to Title VII and the impact those changes had on the ability of employees to sue their employers for hostile environment sexual harassment. My research revealed that the changes in the law significantly affect the time that employees have to file claims, and I expressed this result in a written memorandum of law. My writing ability has further developed through my participation on the Indiana Law Review where my note entitled “Hard Cases Make Bad Law: An Analysis of the Judicial Role” has been selected for publication.
Academically, I rank in the top 15% of my class, and I participate in numerous extracurricular activities, including service as the co-chair of the Women’s Caucus and volunteer work at the Marion County Public Defender’s Agency through the law school’s Pro Bono Program. I also clerked for a law firm last summer where I gained experience in general civil litigation. The enclosed law school transcript lists my law school courses taken to date, including courses in Indiana Constitutional Law, Criminal Procedure and Complex Litigation.
I am available to interview at your convenience. Please let me know if I can provide any additional information. Professor Smith has provided a letter of recommendation, which is enclosed. My other references will forward their letters of recommendation directly to you. Here I would like to put in a few words about my additional qualification, In addition to the technical knowledge gained from my engineering experience, I have also developed strong research skills as a law clerk with the law firm of Law, Clerk & Work, where I conducted extensive research In addition to the technical knowledge gained from my engineering experience, I have also developed strong research skills as a law clerk with the law firm of Law, Clerk & Work, where I conducted extensive research, I think this will help me to perform my job in an efficient manner as practical experience has broadened my outlook and has added new dimensions to my approach.
I am hopeful that the above qualities will help in my career. With the experiences that I have gained as a student, and the experiences gained during internship will add to my credentials to my candidature and make me fit for selection by your honorable self.
Thank you for consideration.
