We have the highest respect for the knowledge and experience gained in federal judicial clerkships. Judicial clerks receive excellent legal training, intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the court system and a crash-course in legal writing that make them among the most promising lawyers entering the private practice of law. We actively recruit judicial clerks who are highly motivated, who meet the firm’s high standards of character and competence, and who want to practice in a firm committed to excellence. And we value the added expertise and experience you bring with commensurate credit and compensation.

Former Judicial Clerk Testimonials

At Holland & Knight, I am a member of a team of hard-working lawyers who handle interesting cases, are committed to excellence and are invested in helping me advance my career. The firm's national footprint allows me to work on complex matters across the country that affect clients from a wide range of industries. The attorneys challenge me to take on new projects and build on my existing skills. The firm cultivates an environment designed to nurture my professional development while achieving our clients' goals.
My federal appellate clerkship was an invaluable experience. It made me confident in my research, writing and analytical skills and helped me to hit the ground running when I started at Holland & Knight. Both litigation and appellate partners frequently seek my opinion on issues because of the perspective I gained while clerking.
