Third Circuit hiring a clerk’s office court attorney

The Third Circuit posted a new job announcement this morning for a permanent court attorney position in the clerk’s office. I re-post job announcements like this one here partly as a service to the court, but mostly I do it because they give insight into how the court does its work.

The position reports to the chief deputy clerk and “provides legal guidance and direction for the procedural management of the court’s caseload.” Here are court attorney’s duties:

• Drafts Clerk’s procedural orders which facilitate case management.
• Conducts the initial screening of cases.
• Conducts legal research.
• Provides legal memoranda to the court in emergency matters.

The link to apply online is here. The closing date is April 22, so tarry not, my fellow appellate-procedure devotees!
