Law Clerk Handbook - Federal Judicial Center

29 Oct 2015


This handbook provides an overview of chambers operations and the work of the federal courts. It covers functions and the role of law clerks, conduct, ethics and protocol, and overview of civil litigation process. It does not provide detailed procedures on every aspect of a law clerk’s daily tasks or review the procedures of each individual court (this is in large part because the duties of law clerks vary from judge to judge). Law clerks should become familiar with local court procedures and inquire about a local chambers manual.


The manual is translated within the framework of the “Rule of Law Partnership in Uzbekistan” project, which is a joint project of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Uzbekistan, United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and United Nations Development Programme.
